Summary:

Unlike hepatitis A and B, most patients newly diagnosed with hepatitis C are asymptomatic. The majority of diagnoses are made during biochemical or blood donor screening, or when symptoms emerge from advanced chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, or end-stage liver disease. Clinicians can play a significant case-finding role with people who have hepatitis C because 90% have an identifiable risk factor. By taking careful histories, clinicians can identify those at risk and guide them to serological testing. As many as 50% of people with hepatitis C remain unidentified and pose a serious occupational threat to healthcare workers. This activity provides an overview of related risk factors, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment options.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to provide nurses and physical therapists with a current overview of hepatitis C, including risk factors, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment options. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • State how the hepatitis C virus is transmitted and how healthcare workers can be exposed
  • Describe recommendations for screening, diagnosis, and treatment of hepatitis C
  • List the clinical manifestations of hepatitis C infection
