Primary Care Pharmacists Can Manage Simpler Hep C Cases
« on: November 15, 2017, 11:33:45 am »
With training, primary care pharmacists can guide those with simpler cases of hepatitis C virus (HCV) through treatment, Healio reports.

Researchers in a Veterans Affairs (VA) health system in Long Beach, California, conducted a study in which 13 liver specialist pharmacists trained 13 primary care pharmacists in the treatment of hep C. A total of 138 VA patients with genotype 1 of the virus whose cases were generally uncomplicated were divided into two groups: 64 who were referred to the primary care pharmacists and 74 who were referred to the liver pharmacists. During treatment, the liver pharmacists and a hepatologist were available to answer any of the primary care pharmacists’ questions.
