The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HCV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians.
With 8 FDA approved treatment regimens for chronic HCV, there are many great options for all oral therapy and access has been extended to the majority of special populations. This talk will review the approach to starting HCV therapy and discuss decision points for choosing the right regimen for each patient.
Upon completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
- Discuss pretreatment assessments and considerations in HIV and HCV medicine
- Discuss differences in direct-acting antiviral approvals and recommendations
- Discuss ongoing challenges and unmet needs in HCV treatment

Conflicts of Interest
In the interest of maintaining the independence of its CME activities, and in accordance with the policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the IAS–USA requires all persons with control of content (eg, faculty, IAS–USA Board members, and program staff) to disclose any financial relationships that they or their spouses or partners have had with commercial companies within the past 12 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in an IAS–USA CME activity.
The ACCME defines a commercial interest as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests – unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.”
