Evaluation and management of hepatitis B virus infection
Pratt DS

Program Audience Primary care physicians. Educational Needs Addressed It is estimated that there are 1.25 million patients in the United States chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV). Chronic HBV infection, if undiagnosed, can result in progressive liver disease and increased risk for developing hepatocellular carcinoma. It is critical for patients at higher risk for HBV, particularly those from endemic regions, to receive the appropriate screening and follow-up. Treatment has been shown to slow disease progression and reduce the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Identify patients who should be screened for chronic HBV infection 2. Know the appropriate approach to screening and follow-up testing 3. Describe the natural history of chronic hepatitis B 4. Describe the available options for treatment and endpoints for therapy
