Event description

Join INHSU and EMCDDA for this half-day workshop focussing on the practical implementation of evidence-based interventions for hepatitis C such as point-of-care testing, dried blood spot testing, peer support, patient navigation and case finding.

This workshop is intended for anyone interested in implementing or scaling up interventions for hepatitis C in their service setting, including healthcare providers, community members and policymakers from a variety of settings, e.g. primary care, drug and alcohol services, corrections, outreach, homelessness, mental health, needle and syringe services & health departments.

The workshop will showcase good practice interventions and models of care, highlighting key research, challenges and learnings in a collaborative coaching environment, with the aim of supporting participants to develop or enhance their own models of hepatitis C care.

In addition, the EMCDDA Increase access to hepatitis C testing and care in drug services toolkit will be presented.

After attending this event, you will be able to:

  • Identify areas for enhancing or scaling up your HCV service delivery
  • Understand how a variety of interventions work
  • Identify suitable interventions for your service
  • Describe how the intervention could be implemented in your service setting
  • Analyse possible barriers to implementing interventions and how to overcome them

The workshop will begin at 1:00pm, with registration and lunch from 12:00pm. The workshop will end at 5:00pm. 

The workshop is delivered by the International Network on Health and Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU) in collaboration with EMCDDA.
