Abstract  Our Community, Our Commitment HBV Counseling Toolkit is a unique, multicomponent, CME/CE-certified activity composed of educational materials to support your counseling efforts with Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander (ANHOPI) patients. The toolkit includes counseling guides for the health care provider and informational booklets for your patients on issues that are critical to their understanding of hepatitis B; the importance of preventing, screening, and testing for hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, as well as vaccinating against HBV; and the need for early diagnosis and treatment of chronic hepatitis B (CHB). An informative video is also included, providing guidance on how to screen, test, counsel, and treat your patients. Finally, a resource guide provides additional educational resources on HBV for patients and their health care providers.
