Working Toward Elimination of Hepatitis C: The Kentucky Hepatitis Academic Mentorship Program: Author Interview
This Author Interview is the third in the "Innovations in Hepatitis Elimination" series, a collaboration between the Coalition for Global Hepatitis Elimination and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) journal, Clinical Liver Disease. Barbra Cave and colleagues recently published the article, "Working Toward Elimination of Hepatitis C: The Kentucky Hepatitis Academic Mentorship Program" in the September issue of Clinical Liver Disease. You can read the article here: https://aasldpubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cld.1028. The Kentucky Hepatitis Academic Mentorship Program (KHAMP), is an in-person and distanced-based program aimed to increase the number of primary care, addiction care, and women’s health providers who can treat HCV in KY.
In the interview, Dr. Ward, Director of the Coalition, speaks with Barbra Cave about the origins and design of the KHAMP program, the impact of KHAMP on scaling HCV treatment to date, and how this innovative training model can be scaled to other contexts.
After the Author Interview, Dr. Ward spoke with Dr. Judith Feinberg about the West Virginia Hepatitis Academic Mentorship Program (WVHAMP), an adaption of KHAMP. Watch this discussion below.
