Chronic HCV Infection: Making the Decision to Treat_Patients

Durham, NC US
November 21, 2014

The cure rates for chronic hepatitis C infection continue to improve with the advent of highly effective, simpler, more tolerable therapies, and the approval of even more effective and tolerable therapies is anticipated within the year. In parallel, practice guidelines are changing so often they are only available in digital format.

Two workshops will run in parallel. One workshop is intended
for providers who care for HCV patients or want to learn
more about HCV care. The other workshop is for patients
with HCV infection. Physicians and non-physicians completing
the workshop are eligible for CME.

This event is from 9:00AM - 12:00PM

There is limited space available.
