Get up to speed on hepatitis C

  • Comment
Nurses are being urged to increase their knowledge of hepatitis C before the next round of a government public awareness campaign on the disease.
The latest round of the FaCe It campaign, which is supported by the RCN, will include press and radio advertisements until the end of March.
There are around 60,000 diagnoses of the disease in England but it is estimated that the true number infected is nearer 200,000.
RCN general secretary Peter Carter said: ‘We encourage all nurses to ensure they are fully aware of the transmission routes, diagnostic process, prognosis and treatment
of the virus, and to be mindful of it when interacting with patients.’
