92095 - Preventing liver cancer through diagnosis and management of hepatitis B

  • : Online


This online HBV training consists of 4 modules that look at vaccination, who to test and how, HBV phases and how this relates to a General Practitioners practice. Each interactive module goes for approximately 15 minutes each using case studies and drag and drop features.

Relevance to General Practice

Liver cancer, a large proportion of which is attributed to hepatitis B, is the fastest increasing cause of cancer death in Australia. Just over half of Australians who are living with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) are still undiagnosed. GPs can play a crucial role in testing, diagnosing and appropriately managing patients in the primary care setting and in turn decrease the incidence of liver cancer in Australia.

Learning outcomes
  • Describe the relationship between hepatitis B virus (HBV) and advanced liver disease and liver cancer
  • Identify the priority populations for HBV testing in Australia.
  • Identify which tests need to be ordered to make a diagnosis of HBV & interpret serology to determine the patients hepatitis B status
  • Implement use of the ASHM decision making in HBV resource to determine which phase of disease a patient is in and how this affects their management.
  • Explain the need for regular lifelong monitoring of patients with CHB and understand that there is no such thing as a ‘healthy carrier’ of hepatitis B.
