Description:

The “It’s Time: Integrate Viral Hepatitis into Your Work” training was developed under a four year cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The training was developed by a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in viral hepatitis, program implementation, training curriculum development and evaluation. The training offers participants an opportunity to:
  1. Examine basic information about the liver, hepatitis A, B, and C;
  2. Build skills to provide client-centered counseling on viral hepatitis; and
  3. Learn strategies for incorporating viral hepatitis messages and services into their busy work schedules.

Between January and August of 2005, the “It’s Time” training was offered 15 times across the country to specific audiences. The training was extensively evaluated and data showed a positive impact on provider knowledge, attitudes, and practices as a result of the training. Training materials include: 1) a fully developed manual to guide a trainer through delivering the program, 2) a fully developed manual for participants, 3) slidesets, 4) interactive exercises, and 5) other resources. Training content was updated in 2007.A CD with all training materials is available upon request. Partners: This training center is a project of the New York State Department of Health in conjunction with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services.
