Description:  The natural history and epidemiology of HCV Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) can survive in the environment for 16 hours on a dry surface and can be detected in saliva. It is important that clinicians understand the disease, how to identify it, and how to follow-up for HCV and other bloodborne pathogens after a needlestick injury.

Learning Objective:  In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Organization for Safety, Asepsis, and Prevention (OSAP), the goal of this webinar is to bring clinicians and their teams up to date with:

  • New HCV therapies
  • Recent screening guidelines from the CDC
  • Surveillance for HCV
  • Healthcare-related hepatitis infections and prevention options
  • Recommendations for needlestick injury response
