Hepatitis C patient research- new results!
A few months ago, RRU Research and I partnered together to conduct focus groups among Hepatitis C patients, their doctors, and other medical personnel. The study was commissioned by the NYC Department of Health, and the purpose was to assess the effectiveness of a health care coordination program called Project INSPIRE.
Our colleagues at the NYC DOH are presenting these results today at the NYC Viral Hepatitis Symposium.
Check out this previous blog for some of the challenges we experienced in recruiting Hep C patients as well as other hard-to-reach populations.
