Hepatitis C Treatment includes three interactive online modules that include a variety of learning activities such as eLearning units, readings, discussion board assignments, videos and webinars. You can work through each weekly online module at your own pace. Each module takes approximately 1-1.5 hours to complete. An in-person training is held on the fourth week to conclude the course.
