HCV Assessment Manual (2021)

The first edition of the HCV Assessment Manual was published in 2014, with the launch of the ALS. Since then, we have all (assessors, Quality Panel members, ALS staff) gained experience on how report evaluation works in practice. Building on this experience and the fact that in December 2018, the HCV Network launched a new website and ALS web platform for report evaluation - it was necessary to update the manual and templates.

As a reminder, in October 2018, we shared a draft version of this manual for comments, which were received and addressed.

In September 2021 we updated this document to reflect changes to the publication of public summaries.
We intend to work on further improvements to this manual as it is used in practice. Upon publication of this manual and the accompanying reporting templates (HCV assessment report template), any HCV assessments beginning after the publication of the new documents, must use the new manual and templates.
