Program Description

Missed opportunities, new challenges, a growing threat. Compared to 2014, cases of acute hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection increased 20.7% in 2015, fueled by the opioid epidemic which accounted for 59.4% of cases. 1,000 babies are infected each year through mother-to-child transmission. Barriers to vaccination, screening, and treatment - from providers and patients - can be broken down by best practice strategies driven by data. Is HBV a game? No, but that doesn't mean learning best practices strategies can't be.

Join our expert faculty for this interactive CME Outfitters recorded symposium with its goal of improving confidence to make practice changes that will result in improved screening, evaluation, treatment, and monitoring of individuals infected with chronic HBV. Test your knowledge of HBV along the way and see how you answer compared to the live audience from this symposium.

Intended Audience

Primary care physicians, internists, gastroenterologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who treat patients with HBV
