New Hepatitis A Virus Tool for Emergency Providers

Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is a highly contagious viral illness that can lead to serious morbidity and occasional mortality. As shown by the most recent outbreak in California, HAV is proving to present a renewed public health challenge. To aid in the fight against HAV, a new tool has been developed by researchers from the University of California and from San Diego County EMS to help emergency physicians become more familiar with the identification and management of patients with Hepatitis A virus. 

Check out the recently published tool and the corresponding paper below.
