Description

The 7th Annual London Joint Working Group on Substance Use and Hepatitis C conference will focus on Leading London to Hepatitis C Elimination.

This year's conference will be held on Tuesday 26th September 2017 in Livery Hall, Guildhall, London.

The conference will be led by LJWG Co-Chairs, Dr Emily Finch, Consultant Addiction Psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and Clinical Director at the Addictions Clinical Academic Group, and Dr Suman Verma, Consultant Hepatologist Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Honorary Consultant at Royal Brompton Hospital.

This year's sessions include:

  • Strategic decision making and action, with presentations focused on the challenges and opportunities facing hepatitis C services and patients in London, how sustainability and transformation plans can help progress towards hepatitis C elimination and hepatitis C from an international perspective.

  • Interventions for impact, including presentations about the family involvement in interventions, understanding barriers to data collection and onward referral, active case finding in pharmacy testing and homeless populations, reaching the prison community and the opportunities and aspirations for elimination by 2030
