Abstract

Okayama prefecture has conducted seminars on viral hepatitis primarily for new staff members belonging to the department dealing with liver diseases in public health centers and hospitals; participants have been certified as “hepatitis medical care coordinators.” This survey was planned to (1) evaluate the viral hepatitis awareness activities they conducted after seminars using self-reported questionnaires and (2) clarify whether their knowledge and practices were appropriate to classify them as competent hepatitis medical care coordinators as per the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Japan. Among all 298 coordinators in the Okayama prefecture, 146 responded to the survey; 84 worked at the same department and 45 matched the coordinator in their daily activities. Further, 36 were transferred to different departments and 20 conducted awareness activities as hepatitis medical care coordinators in addition to their daily responsibilities. Transfer of hepatitis medical care coordinators may help expand hepatitis awareness activities across different departments.
