Hepatitis C in Primary Care and Drug and Alcohol Settings Education Program
Open access online learning modules
This online learning module consists of four individual modules that should be completed in sequential order. Each module will take you approximately 30 minutes to complete and all four modules must be completed prior to attending a workshop. Or, you can complete the online learning independently.
The highly interactive workshops give participants an opportunity to put learning into practice. Facilitated by local experts in the field, the workshop is structured around real-life case studies giving attendees the skills to confidently manage patients with hepatitis C.
The workshops are free to attend, but places are limited so registration is essential.

AISF is a non-profit scientific association established in 1970 and recognised in May 1998 by an Italian Government ministerial decree. It is the only national association for the study of the liver.
With over 1800 members who are hepatologists from different areas of expertise (gastroenterology, internal medicine, transplantation, infectious diseases, immunology, surgery), AISF promotes the advance of scientific research and of the clinical practice of hepatology through training initiatives and the exchange of scientific knowledge.
The Italian Medicines Agency – AIFA is a public body that operates independently, transparently and economically, under the direction of the Ministry of Health and the supervision of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Economy.
The Association was founded with two purposes: to create an economically independent association and to develop concrete and operational know-how on hepatitis C counseling, education, prevention and information. EpaC is now the most active not-for-profit group in Italy in providing information on hepatitis C.
