Controlling Hepatitis C in the Workplace: Diagnosis, Staging and Treatment

Speaker:  John D. Scott, MD, MSc  Associate Professor of Medicine, Medical Director, UW Telehealth, and Associate Director, Hepatitis and Liver Clinic, UW Medicine 

Workplaces where direct contact with blood may occur should be prepared for the presence of Hepatitis C (HCV) and other infectious diseases in the workplace. HCV can be a sensitive topic due to stigmas and myths surrounding such infections. When an employee or patient presents with HCV symptoms, specific steps must be taken to control the spread of infection and protect the safety, health, and dignity of all individuals.  All employees in a workplace where blood contact can occur should be educated on HCV diagnosis, staging, and treatment, as well as state and federal regulations.
