Hepatitis

leave a comment »

Hepatitis is the often forgotten conversation when it comes to sexual assault medical-forensic care. I find a lot of folks are skipping over it in trainings and in working individually with patients, even though we know that many of our patients may be at greater risk for contracting hepatitis than HIV. The University of Washington and the Seattle STD/HIV Prevention Training Center have teamed up for an online course on viral hepatitis, funded by the CDC.

The modules are case-based and free of charge. CEs are available for each module (0.5 per case study for physicians and nurses). Just a warning–the “Other Viruses” and “Common Management Issues” modules are still in development, so only the Hep A-C modules are live.
