Over the past four years, the number of therapeutic options for Hepatitis C has increased and has led us to an interferon-free treatment era. A review of the literature that led to approvals of the direct acting antivirals, including a brief introduction to pipeline agents will be provided. Clinical guidelines will be reviewed. Opportunities for pharmacist involvement in the care of patients with hepatitis C will be highlighted.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. Review epidemiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of Hepatitis C
2. Compare FDA-approved treatment options for genotype 1 infections
3. Evaluate recommended treatment strategies for genotype 1 infections
4. Describe the role of a pharmacist in the treatment of Hepatitis C
