Nurse practitioners, PAs, Pharmacists, and PCPs can treat most hepatitis c infected patients in an office based setting and be confident that the vast majority of the these patients will be cured. We have the rare opportunity to eliminate a potentially life threatening disease and hepatitis C treatment (HCV) administered by nonspecialist providers is as safe and effective as that provided by specialists. We can substantially expand the availability of community-based providers to escalate HCV therapy, bridging existing gaps in the continuum of care for patients with HCV infection. Together, we can eliminate Hep C.
