      Blood Born Viruses, HIV,HBV, HCV

      Control of Blood Borne Viruses (BBV) is a central focus in health care. The main blood–borne viruses of concern are the Human Immunodeficiency Virus(HIV), Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. BBVs can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby. The prevalence of transmissible blood-borne viral infections is quite high globally, especially in developing countries.

      Nurses who undertake exposure-prone procedures (EPP) are at risk of contracting blood-borne viruses. Needle stick injuries are found to be the most important risk factor while managing clients with these infections. Standard precautions should be taken with all patients in all health-care facilities.

      Blood Borne Viruses vary in symptoms, risks factors and treatment. However, preventing and managing infections depend on an understanding of the differences between them. This course enables nurses to have a greater understanding about blood borne viruses to manage clients in pre and post exposure and to help clients live positively with infection.
