Hepatitis C TeleECHO

 Hepatitis C


Gain expert knowledge in a virtual learning network with a collaboration of the Cherokee Nation Health Services and Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences ECHO team. 

 

The curriculum is designed to increase primary care provider knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy in the prevention, screening, evaluation, and treatment of hepatitis C.

 

Why Hepatitis C ECHO?

  • In Oklahoma, the prevalence of hepatitis C is estimated to be 3.4%, over 2 times the US national estimate.
  • Hepatitis C care can easily be delivered by primary care clinicians with appropriate training and guidance of specialists in the management of these sometimes difficult to reach patient populations.
  • Rural Oklahoma providers can become local experts in the management and care of hepatitis C infected individuals, thus leading to a wider spread of care for this potentially fatal but easily curable disease.

Schedule

Every Thursday, 12 to 1pm Central Time. To Join this ECHO session registration is a one-time requirement. Once registered, you will receive an ECHO participant guide with more information.
