Military families are often faced with unique stressors that civilian families do not have to deal with, such as deployment, geographic separation, and frequent relocation. When an NP is providing care for a military family, it is important that these unique stressors are discussed and understood. NPs can employ the Causal Uncertainty Model to encourage effortful cognition and support family attributes to ameliorate the negative effects of the stressors these families may face.

New medications offer sustained virologic response rates of over 95%, fewer adverse reactions, and shorter durations of therapy. This article reviews the new treatment guidelines for the evaluation and management of patients with HCV infection.
