Prevention and Treatment of Hepatitis C

This funding is to support public health activities related to the prevention and treatment of hepatitis C (HCV). BOAPC will reconvene the county-wide hepatitis C working group, work with clinical partners to train more primary care physicians/clinical partners in providing treatment for HCV, and will facilitate two in-person Community of Practice dinners for clinicians in the Berkshires interested in learning more about HCV, a fall county-wide ‘HCV Treatment Update’ for any interested providers to learn about current practices and changes to HCV treatment, and a training for medical residents at BMC in October 2023.

NEW: We have a new resource available for primary care providers screening patients for Hepatitis C. What do you do with the test results? A handy flowchart is here:
