Hep C Elimination Provider Training: Eradication of Hepatitis C in Missouri

Mid-America ATTC is please to promote a new training series offered through a collaboration between the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, MO Healthnet, Missouri Telehealth Network’s Show-Me ECHO, Missouri Primary Care Association, Mid-America Addiction Technology Transfer Center, and Swope Health. This training will be at no cost to the provider and will provide information on hepatitis C testing, linkage to care, and treatment. It will also equip the provider with tools on how to implement a hepatitis C clinic and expand provider capacity within Missouri to serve individuals who need hepatitis C treatment. 

This is the first session in the four part series.

Presenters: Bruce Bacon MD, Emeritus Professor of Internal Medicine, Saint Louis University School of Medicine, and Eyad Alsabbagh, MD, Transplant Hepatologist, Saint Louis University

Summary: With currently available medications, the likelihood of eradication of hepatitis C is high as long as those infected receive readily available medication. Cure rates are better than 95%. The key is to identify all infected individuals and get them to treatment.
