Hepatitis C Public Health Detailing Kit

Overview

NACCHO’s Hepatitis C Public Health Detailing Kit is a collection of tools and resources to support local health departments in implementing public health detailing as a strategy to increase healthcare provider awareness and uptake of effective practices for HCV screening, diagnosis, and linkage to care and treatment. Public health detailing is a provider education method that includes visiting local provider sites to deliver brief trainings or presentations and distribute tools and resources to support uptake of best practices and patient education.

Below are links to download or access each resource included in the detailing kit. Before utilizing the detailing kit materials, users are encouraged to review the User’s Guide, which provides an overview of public health detailing and descriptions of each resource in the Detailing Kit and its intended use.

The User's Guide provides descriptions of each resource in the Detailing Kit and its intended use, as well as an overview of public health detailing.

These tools can be used by local health departments to educate healthcare providers on the epidemiologic profile of HCV nationally and locally, testing and treatment recommendations and guidelines, and what they can do to increase HCV testing, diagnosis, and linkage to care for treatment for their patients.

These resources are directed toward patients, and can be included in a health department’s packet of leave-behind materials given to providers to make available to their patients. Additionally, they include information and data that can be incorporated into health department-developed leave-behind materials. Some CDC-developed materials are also available in Spanish, and can be accessed online at www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/hcv/patienteduhcv.htm
