A closer look at pain and hepatitis C: Preliminary data from a veteran population

Amy K. Silberbogen, PhD, et al.

Many veterans who have hepatitis C also experience pain. Researchers are learning how to care for patients who experience hepatitis C and pain. They are also learning how hepatitis C and pain can affect patients' lives. We review research on the relationship between hepatitis C and pain. We also present findings from a survey given to patients at two Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals. Finally, we suggest how physicians and mental health providers can best care for patients with hepatitis C and pain.
