General Internal Medicine Education Conference 2020 - Management of Hepatitis C in Primary Care 6/25/2020

New screening guidelines based on changing epidemiology are leading to more diagnoses of Hepatitis C and a greater need for treatment than can be met by gastrointestinal and infectious disease specialists. Newer anti-viral medications that are safer, more effective, and simpler to use make treatment in primary care practical. This presentation, together with a new Knowledge Map guideline and the assistance of a specialty pharmacy, will guide the primary care provider through treating their patient's hepatitis C in the primary care setting.
