Hepatitis C Training Workshops

In 2001, the Hepatitis C Support Project (HCSP) conducted a broad needs assessment for hepatitis C awareness and education. The Project determined that the most needed resource was a quality HCV educational process that could be widely distributed and utilized throughout underserved communities affected by HCV. To accomplish this objective, HCSP designed a prototype two-day program that covers hepatitis C awareness and education in a training workshop environment. The goal of this program is to educate individuals who can then educate their respective communities on HCV. The areas targeted for the Project's first series of outreach programs are rural communities in Northern and Central California. The goal of the Project is to reach communities in need of HCV awareness and education nationally. Click here to see locations of trainings and recertifications and here to see maps of past and future trainings.

The goal of the Hepatitis C Training Workshops is to provide unbiased and quality education to the HCV community and to the general public. Our vision is that our training workshops will provide HCSP certified HCV Educators for local agencies.

About the Training Workshops
The Hepatitis C Training Workshop is now an intensive one-day workshop that will provide the necessary knowledge and tools for people to go out into their communities and educate others about hepatitis C. The topics covered in the workshop include:

  • The Liver
  • HCV Transmission and Prevention
  • HCV Diagnostic Tools
  • HCV Symptoms, Disease Progression and Disease Management
  • HCV Medical Treatment

Workshop participants who successfully complete the training will have learned the necessary information to provide a basic HCV presentation. In addition, the training workshop will provide background information on HCV that will enable the trainees to be able to address an audience’s questions about hepatitis C.

Furthermore, workshop participants who successfully complete the course will be certified as a Basic Hepatitis C Educator by the HCSP for a period of one year. Annual recertification will be available.

The overall goal for this program is to provide HCSP-trained educators throughout the United States.

The Hepatitis C Support Project has partnered with various organizations across the United States to conduct trainings.
