186413 - Eliminating hepatitis C: Part 3. Curing hepatitis C in general practice

  • : Online

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

GPs can treat most people living with hepatitis C using direct-acting antivirals (DAAs). These medications are highly effective, with few side effects, and can cure more than 95% of individuals. Curing an individual’s infection can significantly reduce their risk of developing liver disease and liver cancer, and reduce onward transmission, moving Australia towards the WHO goal of hepatitis C elimination.
