Abstract

Drug treatment staff are uniquely situated to support their clients' HCV related needs, and those with greater self efficacy to do so are more likely to provide this support. Using data collected from staff (N = 140) in 6 drug treatment programs in New York City, we determined the correlates of this self efficacy. Results indicate that medically credentialed staff and staff with more hepatitis C knowledge have greater self efficacy to support their clients' HCV related needs. There was no relationship between this self efficacy and the staff member's own HCV infection or that of a close relative. Efforts should focus on increasing staff's HCV knowledge in order to increase their confidence in providing HCV related support to their clients.
