HealthHCV has launched its 2019 State of HCV Care National Survey in partnership with Medscape. Healthcare providers are invited to participate, specifically hepatologists, gastroenterologists, infectious disease specialists, HIV specialists, primary care providers, and others screening for and/or treating hepatitis C (HCV), to provide essential information to shape national HCV provider and patient education and advocacy efforts in 2019. Click here to complete the survey.
There is a dearth of data that can help us fully understand the extent of the national HCV epidemic. Data collected from this survey can help inform effective public health and clinical interventions to eliminate HCV. The results of the survey will help understand the state of HCV in specialty and primary care, such as screening and diagnostic practices, treatment access and reimbursement, barriers to care, provider training needs, and integration and coordination of HCV services with behavioral health and substance use treatment. The results and report from the 2015 survey are available here: http://healthhiv.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/State20of20HCV_v3_single20pages.pdf - PDF.
Please share this survey widely to improve the report and share your experiences to help ultimately eliminate HCV!
