Alcohol, Drugs and Hepatitis C, Brewing up a Perfect Storm

Findings of a large French study showed that of all liver-related events in people with Hepatitis C, nearly half occurred in those with alcohol use disorders and only 14% in people with hepatitis C who had neither an alcohol use disorder or other co-morbidity. Hepatitis Scotland, in conjunction with Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP), are holding a conference that will focus on the health impact of alcohol on those who are affected by Hepatitis C and highlight current practice implications.

Speakers and topics include:

  • Dr Michaël Schwarzinger, Translational Health Economics Network, Paris
  • Professor David Goldberg, Glasgow Caledonian University and Health Protection Scotland
  • Professor Linda Bauld, University of Stirling and Cancer Research UK
  • Hamish Innes, Glasgow Caledonian University
  • Peer researcher presentation of alcohol and hepatitis service user survey
  • Contributions from practitioners and key Scottish Government officials

This event is aimed at:

  • Clinicians, workers and representatives, especially Drug and Alcohol Treatment services and specialist Hepatitis C services
  • Service planners, commissioners and providers

Delegate Rate: £50
