This five part webinar series will provide attendees with an introduction to the pathogenesis, diagnosis and epidemiology of infectious hepatitis in Ontario. The first session will cover liver anatomy and physiology, the etiology of infectious hepatitis, the healthcare system impact, diagnostic test methodologies and interpretation, and the role of viral typing and sequencing in outbreak investigations. Subsequent sessions will specifically focus on the epidemiology, clinical features and laboratory diagnostic considerations for each of the hepatitis viruses (i.e., A, B/D, C, and E), as well as discuss opportunities for prevention and the impact on public health in Ontario.
