Statement of Need

Screening for hepatitis B virus (HBV) in the emergency department (ED) is an important public health opportunity, as it can reduce transmission in high-risk patients and facilitate linkage to care. HBV testing can be included when screening for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and hepatitis C virus (HCV), and emergency department (ED) physicians to employ strategies for follow-up, including treatment or vaccination, after receiving HBV results.

The third episode of this CMEOCast podcast series focuses on best practices for screening for HBV in the ED, incorporating the use of interprofessional teams, and fostering patient education for optimal treatment outcomes.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify best practices for screening for HBV in the ED.
  • Facilitate linkage to care when managing patients with HBV in the ED in order to foster patient education and optimal treatment outcomes.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE credit:

  • Identify best practices for screening for HBV in the ED.
  • Explain how to facilitate linkage to care when managing patients with HBV in the ED in order to foster patient education and optimal treatment outcomes.
