28marAll DayAccess All Areas – Hepatitis Scotland National Conference


Event Details

The event is closely linked to work supporting the Scottish Government’s new Rights, Respect and Recovery drug and alcohol framework and is led by the co-chairs of the hepatitis C case-finding and access to care expert group, Professor John Dillon and Dr Esther Aspinall.  The day will explore and highlight good practice opportunities and practical implications for staff and services that can contribute to eliminating hepatitis C as a public health issue in Scotland. This conference is suitable for interested staff in addiction and community services, primary care, ADPs and MCNs and other statutory and third sector, including peer-led, services staff.

It will focus on the actions needed to encourage greater numbers of people who already have a hepatitis C diagnosis to re-engage with care services and clear the virus. Through both presentations and workshops from staff and services with practical and strategic experience, we will explore issues around the implementation of local and peer-based support and service accessibility, primary and secondary care coordination and co-delivery of services and practical use of current epidemiology and data sharing, including communication methods for contacting those with a prior diagnosis.

The cost for this whole day conference will be £40.00.
