The half day champion training is for all medical providers, regardless of specialty or prescribing type (MD, NP, AP, etc). We encourage all levels of experience and knowledge to join us. Champion Training is designed for anyone who would like to learn more about screening for or treating people living with HCV.
In order to improve access to patients state wide, we have removed restrictions surrounding who can prescribe HCV medications, removed prior authorizations, and there are no restrictions on what patients can be treated. Even if your patient has been told no before, most patients can now be treated in Louisiana, regardless of liver staging or substance use status.
Feel free to share this email with anyone you think could benefit from education on the screening and treatment of Hepatitis C, and help us be the first state in the nation to eliminate this disease!
If you have any questions, or need additional information please reach out to me via phone, text or email.
We hope to see you all there!
