We have put together a list of resources and tools to help you offer the best care to your patients.
Chronic Hepatitis B Treatment Decision Tool For Adults
The Asian Liver Center at Stanford University has put together a one-minute survey to give clinicians the information needed to help patients with chronic hepatitis B. This treatment decision tool is based on and adapted from the 2018 hepatitis B treatment guidelines from the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). You will need your patient's lab results to complete the survey.
Clinician's Honor Roll
The San Francisco Hep B Free - Bay Area campaign began publication of the Hep B Free Clinician's Honor Roll to promote the growing number of doctor's offices that are testing patients and working to prevent liver cancer and Hepatitis B disease.
Clinicians Pledge to Screen At-Risk Patients
The San Francisco Hep B Free - Bay Area Clinican's Honor Roll was a program that acknowledged primary care clinicians who signed a pledge to screen patients at risk for chronic Hepatitis B infections in accordance with CDC guidelines.
The SF Department of Public Health estimates there are 1,500 clinicians providing primary health care in San Francisco. The goal of SF Hep B Free is to have 90% join the honor roll by signing a pledge to comply with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention screening guidelines. In 2009, the SF Hep B Free Clinicians Honor Roll program began with 702 clinicians. Since then, 263 additional clinicians have joined, for a grand total of 965.
This initiative was tracked by Health Matters in San Francisco and was the only citywide health indicator that measures clinician awareness. It was coordinated through the AsianWeek Foundation in partnership with Communicable Disease Control and Prevention at the San Francisco Dept. of Public Health.
