This educational program is targeted at primary care physicians (PCPs), nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs) and nurses.
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. This initiative features two meeting series:
Live mentorship meetings at Federally Qualified Health Centers and community health centers
Web-based ECHO meetings
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
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the New Mexico Medical Society (NMMS) through the joint providership of Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services (RMCHCS) and Chronic Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF). RMCHCS is accredited by the NMMS to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

In order to support the growth of the ECHO movement, Project ECHO® collects participation data for each teleECHO™ program. This data allows Project ECHO to measure, analyze, and report on the movement's reach. It is used in reports, on maps and visualizations, for research, for communications and surveys, for data quality assurance activities, and for decision-making related to new initiatives.
This program is supported by an educational grant from Gilead Sciences.
