This resource provided by a team at UCD shows how someone with Hepatitis C infection (HCV) can benefit from inter-professional care. Not all HCV patients have symptoms and may be inhibited from getting treatment due to social barriers, stigmatisation or due to their lifestyle. The ‘seek and treat’ approach is discussed by identifying at risk groups in the community. We recommend that students may want to revise the epidemiology, clinical impact and treatment of HCV and work through this resource to think about how care could be delivered.
