HBV Alliance: Program Overview

Target Audience:

This educational program is targeted at primary care physicians (PCPs), nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs) and nurses.

Goal:

The HBV Alliance will focus on advancing HBV management and therapeutics knowledge by establishing a platform and forum for health care professionals to experience high-quality education delivered by leading experts in the field.

Educational objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Review data on the prevalence and transmission of HBV

  • Define the risk of HBV among different patient populations, highlighting high-risk settings

  • Describe the detrimental effects of untreated, chronic HBV to emphasize the need for diagnosis and treatment

  • Demonstrate strategies to incorporate various diagnostic and treatment guidelines into clinical practice

  • Analyze approved and emerging treatment options for HBV

  • Identify patients that are likely to benefit from emerging treatment options versus currently available therapies

The ECHO model™ breaks down the walls between specialty and primary care. It links expert specialist teams at an academic ‘hub’ with primary care clinicians in local communities — the ‘spokes’ of the model. Essentially, ECHO® creates ongoing learning communities where primary care clinicians receive support and develop the skills they need to treat a particular condition. As a result, they can provide comprehensive, best-practice care to patients with complex health conditions, right where they live.
