Education and Training Workshops

 

Our Hepatitis C workshops provide concurrent information concerning the transmission, testing, treatment and reinfection of the Hepatitis C virus. These sessions can be delivered to clients and professionals who come into contact with at-risk groups.

 

This training can be delivered to staff within an organisation and to clients who may be at risk of infection. All staff sessions include guidance concerning the incorporation of Hepatitis C under standard care planning and assessment as well as handouts from the day.
