The most anticipated manual for Hep C  Counseling and Testing – A Guide to Comprehensive Hepatitis C Counseling and Testing  has now been posted under the Hepatitis C Information for Health Professionals section of the CDC Hepatitis Website

There are two different documents/versions available:

•         Manual for use in public health settings                

The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance for counseling and testing of individuals who are at risk for or potentially infected with the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The manual was used in draft form as part of a field assessment among hepatitis C counselors and testers, who field tested the manual and provided recommendations for improving its utility. The field assessment was conducted under contract with Battelle Memorial Institute.

•         Manual for its use in primary care practices          

The purpose of this CDC Hepatitis C Counseling and Testing manual is to provide guidance for hepatitis C counseling and testing of individuals born during 1945–1965. The guide was used in draft form as part of a field assessment conducted
among primary care providers, who field tested the manual and provided recommendations for improving its utility. The field assessment was conducted under contract with the Battelle Memorial Institute and the American Academy of Family Physicians National Research Network.

These manuals are intended for guidance only and may be updated and revised at any time.
