- : Online
This course will provide an overview of the management of hepatitis C in primary care settings and cover case finding, testing and diagnosis, patient assessment and treatment.
An estimated 182,283 Australians were living with chronic hepatitis C at the end of 2017. In Australia, hepatitis C is still a major cause of chronic liver disease, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and liver transplant.
All GPs can prescribe direct acting antiviral therapy for the treatment of hepatitis C, with or without specialist input. Elimination of hepatitis C in Australia by 2030 will require increasing hepatitis C diagnosis, linkage to care and treatment in primary care settings.
