Focus on Virology & Hepatitis C in Medical Independent
Virology was the focus of the professional development section in the current issue of the Medical Independent, which included 2 excellent articles on Hepatitis C.
One of these articles was written by IT Carlow Student Health Nurse & ISHA Assistant PRO, Theresa Lowry-Lehnen, with an update on the disease, and on the screening for and detection of this 'silent virus'.
The other article, authored by Michelle Tait, former manager of the national Hepatitis C Treatment Programme, highlighted the excellent and important work being done by the programme, as well as the challenges faced into the future as we continue to strive to find the hidden cohort of people in Ireland with Hepatitis C.
There was also an excellent article from Priscilla Lynch, on the latest positive news regarding the treatment and prevention of HIV.
