SHAPE – In The News
SHAPE, Supporting Hepatitis Awareness through Program Enhancement. SHAPE is a unique partnership project between Caring Ambassadors Program and Franciscan St. James Health of South Suburban Chicago and Erie Family Health Center of Illinois. The overall objective of SHAPE is to create centers of excellence by modeling hepatitis C (HCV) awareness, screening and care within a health facility’s existing infrastructure and culture. To pilot this model, Caring Ambassadors has partnered with Franciscan St. James Health of South Suburban Chicago and Erie Family Health Center to ultimately tell a story of how to best integrate the continuum of HCV services. This model story will be disseminated for other health systems to adapt and replicate the SHAPE model. More about what is SHAPE…
The information provided primarily targets health service providers; however, individuals with HCV, or friends and family may find this information helpful, too. For individual assistance with hepatitis C, we invite you to review the Caring Ambassadors Program and Hepatitis C pages of our website.
Enjoy the learning. Spread the word.
Thank you for your interest in promoting hepatitis C awareness and treatment!
