  • This Point-of-Care clinical companion focuses on the new treatment paradigm for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection - €”direct-acting antiviral (DAA) agents - €”through a collection of case-based video vignettes.
  • Assess patients who may benefit from direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy and initiate treatment, where appropriate, to improve response rate.
  • Contrast currently approved DAA anti-HCV therapies and formulate potential treatment strategies in chronically HCV-infected patients (including treatment-naive patients, nonresponders, partial responders, and relapsers) by analyzing efficacy, safety, and side effect data, and duration of treatment.
  • Target Audience

    Activity Goal
