Improving Outcomes in Hepatitis C in Chronic Kidney Disease
This 3-part series will address the management of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) from the perspective of nurses and social workers. HCV infection remains a serious public health challenge and is both a cause and complication of CKD.
In this series, participants will learn the risks and clinical manifestations of HCV infection and its associations with CKD. Preventative measures, including infection control in dialysis units and other care settings, will also be addressed. Evaluation and screening of HCV infection will be discussed, along with treatment options in HCV, including direct acting antivirals (DAAs). The role of nurses and social workers in patient management and engagement will also be reviewed.
These activities will be part of the NKF’s Kidney Conversations, a video series that addresses the clinical challenges and best-practice approaches for management of CKD and related conditions. These modules offer a wide breadth of perspectives from a vast array of disciplines. Each activity will enable the participant to learn current science and evidence-based practice for managing CKD and related conditions in a variety of co-morbid settings.
