Upcoming webinar: Clinical Prevention Services and the client perspective

The BC Centre for Disease Control’s (BCCDC) Clinical Prevention Services (CPS) is hosting an all-day webinar series on September 17th 2018.

Topics will span each of CPS’s respective program areas including:

  • Hepatitis
  • Tuberculosis (TB)
  • Harm Reduction
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STI)
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)

The target audience includes, but is not limited to, public health nurses, community health nurses, harm reduction coordinators, communicable disease managers, program managers, physicians, medical health officers and any other professional who works within the respective program areas.

All presentations from the various program areas will focus on the client perspective as the theme. This will serve as the central thread that weaves all the presentations across the various program areas together.
