Hepatitis B s100 Prescriber Course

  • : Canberra ACT 2601

More than 220,000 Australians are living with chronic hepatitis B, with only 5% of people who need antiviral treatment receiving it. Without access to appropriate care, around 15-25% of people will die from their condition.

This course is designed to support GPs to manage and treat hepatitis B in the primary care setting and is an opportunity to become an s100 prescriber for hepatitis B treatment. 

Through online learning and interactive face-face teaching, participants will learn to:

·       Screen at-risk patients, accurately diagnose CHB infection and assess phase of the disease.

·       Monitor patients appropriately, establish suitability for treatment and refer to specialist care if indicated.

·       Discuss aims of treatment, antiviral treatment options, duration of therapy and definitions of response.

·       Monitor patients on treatment according to established protocols, recognise and manage resistance, hepatitis flares and response.

·       Recognise risk factors, clinical signs, symptoms and complications of advanced liver disease and manage or refer to specialist care appropriately.
