Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Substance abuse professionals and other individuals working in health care and mental health treatment may be at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Additionally, many of our clients will be dealing with past exposure which can cause challenges for healing and recovery.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Review the most current information and safety precautions to reduce the risk of exposure.
  • Learn ways to support clients if they have been exposed.
  • Learn about local resources for assisting individuals in managing their health issues.
