Course Summary

Hepatitis C is a viral disease of the liver that is responsible for the death of over 350,000 people worldwide per year. However, there are six genotypes of the Hepatitis C virus and not all require treatment — some resolve on their own without medical intervention. Additionally, in many countries with modern healthcare services, treatment options are available to manage chronic forms of the virus. No vaccine is available, but exposure to the virus can be limited through universal precautions. This course aims to refresh the registered nurse’s approach to management in a patient with the Hepatitis C virus.
