186410 - Eliminating hepatitis C: Part 2. Assessing your patient for antiviral treatment

  • : Online

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

Most patients with hepatitis C can receive direct-acting antiviral (DAA) treatment in general practice.
As soon as a patient is diagnosed with chronic hepatitis C, preparations can begin for DAA treatment.
GPs are ideally placed to assess their patients in preparation for DAA treatment and to identify the minority who require specialist referral.
