What To Discuss With Your Patients and Their Caregivers (1 of 2)

Issues you should discuss with your patients and their caregivers regarding treatments for chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection include:

  •  The disease management strategy (considering no treatment vs. immediate treatment) that would be most appropriate for the individual patient based on the severity of liver disease
  • The type of treatment regimen that might be most suitable for the patient given his or her HCV genotype, severity of disease, likelihood of treatment response, and presence of comorbid conditions
  • The different types of therapeutic regimens currently available for treating chronic HCV infection and the potential therapies on the horizon
