Another milestone was achieved in July. The VFAHT National Council planned a series of Online Workshops on Viral Hepatitis as part of our 3-week Awareness Campaign in recognition of World Hepatitis Day on July 28, 2020.

These workshops were aimed at polishing the clinical skills of the participants and raising awareness about prevention. The content was thoroughly reviewed by our Project Advisor, Dr. Aiman Sheikh, and her team of medical health professionals.

  • Understand the art of history taking, about Hepatitis.
  • Learn steps to reach a diagnosis, including physical examination and diagnostic tests.
  • Understand the basic epidemiology of Hepatitis A, B, and C, and E.
  • Learn about the various complications that are to be expected in patients.
  • Learn how to manage and treat cases of Viral
  • Understand the importance of prevention of Hepatitis A, B, and C and E, including vaccination of Hepatitis A and B.

 

Participants were taught about Hepatitis A and E on the first two days and Hepatitis B and C in the next two days using different case studies.

The workshops consisted of:

  1. Study segments 
  2. Energizers
  3. Team activity and scenario discussion
  4. Game Sessions to reinforce concepts about Hepatitis

 

Approximately 80 volunteers were catered to, ensuring interaction with each of them and clarifying each aspect of the disease.
