Training for professionals
The Hepatitis C Trust is the expert in professional training around hepatitis C.
We help organisations and practitioners across the UK to understand the virus and to improve their policies and practices in supporting people living with hepatitis C.
What we offer
We offer specifically tailored, professional training in all areas of hepatitis C, including a range of accredited packages.
The information is presented in a clear and easy to understand format and caters to staff at all levels of experience and involvement in patient care.
We will discuss your training needs in detail and can create bespoke courses to suit the needs of your organisation.
Training can be delivered online or face-to-face at a location that works best for you.
Who our training is for
It is aimed at anyone working with people who are at risk of blood-borne viruses. Our training is particularly useful for any staff who are undertaking dry blood spot or oral swab testing, harm reduction interventions and pre and post-test discussions.
We train staff working in healthcare settings, prisons, drug services, homeless services, the police and probation services, as well as immigration centres and approved premises.
Our training gives your staff the opportunity to:
- understand more about safer practice
- build confidence in discussing and offering hepatitis C testing
- learn more about how hepatitis C treatment pathways work
- understand more about hepatitis C and treatment
- understand the challenges faced by patients with complex daily routines and find solutions to addressing barriers to care.
