ASHM has collaborated with the International Network on Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU) to adapt and deliver the Hepatitis C in Primary Care and Drug and Alcohol Settings Education Program, internationally.

INHSU is a not-for-profit, member-based organisation dedicated to scientific knowledge exchange, knowledge translation, and advocacy focused on hepatitis C prevention and care among people who use drugs. To find out more please visit www.inhsu.org.

In close partnership with local organisations, ASHM and INHSU tailor and translate the education program to ensure materials and resources meet the needs of practitioners, are in-line with local guidelines and appropriately support increased HCV screening, linkage-to-care and treatment for people living with HCV.

The Education Program is delivered in three parts:

 

ONLINE LEARNING MODULES

Interactive online learning modules provide robust, application-focused learning. Modules include case-based questions and downloadable resources. The modules are open to all practitioners interested in learning more about; HCV epidemiology, prevention and natural history; HCV testing and liver disease assessment; HCV treatment options, monitoring, adherence and post treatment follow-up.

 

FACE-FACE WORKSHOPS

Face-face workshops, led by HCV experts, enable practical application of knowledge through presentations, panels, case discussions and simulation-based models.

 

TOOLKIT AND RESOURCES

Tailored resources provide participants with the tools to implement HCV testing, linkage to care and treatment processes in their setting. These include patient checklists, reference guides, decision making tools and more.
