There are two aspects of prevention that we cover in this module. 

  • The first is how you as a nurse and/or midwife can ensure your personal safety when caring for people who may have a blood-borne virus.

  • The second is what to advise other people at risk of contracting hepatitis, the measures they can take to avoid the virus or to ensure that they are not spreading the virus to family and friends. This refers primarily to safe drug injecting and sexual practices. Other than mother to baby transmission (which is dealt with in detail in another ANMF module), these are the two main transmission routes for viral hepatitis

On completion of this module, you should be able to:

  • Describe the functions of the liver
  • Describe the various types of hepatitis and their transmission routes
  • Identify people ‘at risk’ of contracting viral hepatitis
  • Identify myths that surround hepatitis transmission
  • Adopt standard procedures in a health environment without offending the client
  • Adopt safe procedures if there is a blood spill
  • Identify the risks of needle stick / sharp injuries and adopt procedures to take if an injury occurs
  • Reference organisation blood-borne virus protection procedures
  • Provide advice to clients on safe drug injecting practices
  • Provide advice to clients on safe sex practices
  • Provide advice to clients on safe household practices to prevent hepatitis transmission
  • Explain the role of Needle and Syringe Programs (NSPs) in Australia
