The Key to Hepatitis C: a review of hepatitis C management - Kristi Kelley
There is a high number of patients with a diagnosis of hepatitis C at Princeton Baptist Medical Center’s internal medicine resident clinic. Despite hepatitis C being a common diagnosis, medications to manage the disease state are rarely prescribed in clinic due to the associated treatment cost of medications. Although it is not common for hepatitis C medications to be prescribed in clinic, many patients are undergoing treatment for hepatitis C.
The internal medicine clinic healthcare team consists of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and social workers. All parties work collectively to optimize the health and well-being of all patients. Due to the collaborative effort in the management of all disease states and the high number of hepatitis C diagnoses of patients in clinic, the purpose of this presentation is to increase the audience's (healthcare staff) knowledge of the various medications that may be used for the treatment of hepatitis C. The following points will be discussed in relation to hepatitis C treatment medications: affordability, administration, adverse reactions, duration, and drug interactions.
Zoe Nadler and Alyson Smith, 4th year Student Pharmacists at AUHCOP, will be assisting with the development and delivery of this program.
