Hepatitis C screening in Alberta : a health technology assessment

Description

This report presents the findings and conclusions of a provincial health technology assessment on Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) screening. The primary policy issue for this report was to determine the optimal strategy for HCV screening in Alberta, including determining the appropriate population for targeted HCV screening, whether there any relevant non age-based sub-populations at particular risk for HCV for whom targeted HCV screening would be appropriate, and whether it is appropriate to introduce age-based targeted HCV screening in the province.
