Welcome to the Nursing Times Learning online training course on hepatitis C treatment and prevention.
Hepatitis C, a blood-borne virus, infects between 250,000-600,000 people in the UK. However, many of those infected with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) remain unaware of the infection.
This unit is one of many online courses for nurses available from Nursing Times, the UK's leading independent, peer-reviewed journal for nurses. It will teach you:
- How to recognise individuals most at risk of infection with the hepatitis C virus (HCV)
- About testing procedures and pre- and post-test discussions
- About pharmacological treatments and strategies to reduce hep C transmission
- How to manage and support patients with HCV
