Specialist hepatology nurses leading the way

Qld Nurse. Sep-Oct 2004;23(5):15.

Abstract

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is transmitted when infected blood from one person gets directly into the bloodstream of another. The most common way that HCV is transmitted in Australia is through the sharing of injecting drug use equipment. It is extremely likely that all nurses will meet a person with chronic HCV at some stage of their career.
