Post-exposure management of healthcare worker bloodborne exposure is a process that should be clearly outlined in medical and dental practices. Recently the CDC published Testing and Clinical Management of Health Care Personnel Potentially Exposed to Hepatitis C Virus, which provides updated guidance on post-exposure management.

Join Karen Gregory, RN as she explains this update and how it impacts how exposures are handled. A written post-exposure protocol will be provided as part of this session.

This session will cover the following:

  • Recommended testing for both the source patient and exposed healthcare worker
  • Follow-up for documented hepatitis C exposure

At the end of this session, the attendee will:

  • Discuss post-exposure testing of source patients
  • Describe post-exposure testing of exposed healthcare worker

This session is designated for 1.0 hours of continuing education credit.
