Abstract

DATE:  July 28, 2020

TIME:   9:00 am PDT, 12:00 pm EDT

 

The demographic profile of hepatitis B and C has seen a paradigm shift over the last 10 years and as a result clinical guidelines for hepatitis testing are changing. With updated screening recommendations on the way it is necessary to understand the role of serological markers in both diagnosis of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and monitoring HBV disease status.  The best way to reduce the spread of HBV infection and to optimize patient management is through the implementation of robust serological testing; with a few caveats along the way.   
 
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the shift in screening recommendation for hepatitis in the clinical guidelines based on the rise of hepatitis in younger demographics including HBV and HCV
  • Recognize the importance of serological markers for HBV diagnosis and management
  • Identify potential caveats when testing based on serological profiles and the complexity of HBV
