|dc.description||Hepatitis C (HCV) is a common and potentially serious infection affecting people who have injected or who continue to inject drugs. Addiction treatment services for injecting drug users have expanded considerably in Ireland Since 1993, with general practice increasingly providing continuing care. A multidisciplinary group developed a set of guidelines for the management of HCV among this population, using a combination of scientific evidence, or where this was lacking, expert consensus. Interviews with practising clinicians were used to determine a workable intervention to facilitate effective implementation of these guidelines in general practice. The guidelines, and their accompanying implementation strategy (a complex intervention consisting of a combination of educational, organisational and clinical supports) were implemented in a representative sample of general practices in the Eastern Regional Health Authority area of Ireland.||en_GB|
