Curing Hep C: A primary care approach

A talk for health-care providers and researchers.

In Ontario, Hep C is responsible for more years of life lost than HIV or influenza. The good news: there are now effective treatments available via many public drug plans. The St. Michael’s Hospital Academic Family Health Team has set a goal of curing all patients in their practice with known Hep C infection. This talk will cover:

  • Why we should focus on Hepatitis C treatment
  • Early findings from a multi-faceted quality improvement initiative to cure Hep C at the St Michael’s Hospital Academic Family Health Team
  • How you can help make sure patients with Hep C – wherever they present in the hospital – can access treatment
