160197 - Chronic hepatitis C: management in primary care - Clinical e-Audit
- : Online
This Clinical e-Audit provides GPs with the opportunity to review and self-reflect on their diagnosis, assessment and management of patients with hepatitis C infection.Relevance to General Practice
Chronic hepatitis C (HCV) infection is a major public health issue, leading to long-term liver disease, transplants and mortality. In 2017, approximately 95% of those who were treated were cured, yet only 11% of people living with chronic HCV infection received treatment during that year.
To achieve a commitment to WHO to eliminate hepatitis C in Australia by 2030, the role of GPs as frontline primary health care providers is critical. This quality improvement educational activity provides an update on diagnosis, pre-treatment assessment, and appropriate use of medical tests and medicines.
