the health of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders (AAPIs)
New CME-certified Activity

Hepatitis B disproportionately affects Asian and Pacific Islander communities. Because currently available therapy can't eradicate the hepatitis B virus (HBV), the objective of treatment is viral suppression. But many with chronic hepatitis B are unaware of their disease status, which can result in an increased likelihood of virus transmission and fewer treatment options with poorer outcomes. Experts in hepatitis B discuss the importance of testing for HBV and treatment of chronic hepatitis B so patients can “be there” for their families.

West Meets East: Integrating Eastern Philosophies with Western Approaches for Managing Chronic Hepatitis B
The high prevalence of hepatitis B (HBV) in Asian-American communities makes it necessary to identify best practices to diagnose new cases and reduce progression to chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Asian-American communities often stigmatize persons of Asian descent with CHB, which can create barriers to screening, diagnosis, and treatment. Experts in HBV will consider how integrating Western and Eastern medicine, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, may improve the management of HBV in Asian-American communities.


Launch Program

Clinical Care Options is excited to present an interactive decision support tool for the management of patients with HBV, now available in Simplified Chinese and English.
