What is KHAMP?
The Kentucky Hepatitis Academic Mentorship Program (KHAMP) is a training platform designed using a tele-mentoring-based training program for primary care providers throughout communities in the Commonwealth.
Primary care providers will receive training on hepatitis C epidemiology, diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention. Thus, primary care providers throughout the Commonwealth will be equipped with the skills needed to treat hepatitis C patients in their local communities.
KHAMP will train providers on treating individuals for hepatitis C in their local communities which will increase the number of individuals treated, help to bridge the gap between prevention and management of hepatitis infections throughout the Commonwealth. The final goal: KHAMP will be an easily accessible, regardless of location, training program that meets the needs of primary care providers throughout the Commonwealth who are interested in providing hepatitis C services.KHAMP is Kentucky's Founding chapter of USHAMP (United States Hepatitis Academic Mentorship Program)
