Abstract:Hepatitis C remains a chronic health condition in the United States and represents a major factor in the development of hepatocellular cancer. Despite the introduction of newly developed antiviral medications, many of those infected with chronic hepatitis C remain undiagnosed and untreated. This evidence based practice (EBP) program was designed to address the lack of hepatitis C screening being done in the community. 15 articles were chosen based on level of evidence and applicability to the program, and these were synthesized for development of a screening program. The screening program was implemented at a clinic with a large population of high risk individuals, many with active intravenous drug use. Results of the program were positive, although confounding variables exist, including other interventions implemented at the program site.
