ASHM: Learn to manage and treat Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B s100 Prescriber Course

As rates of Hepatitis B increase over the next 10 years in Australia, there is a need for primary care practitioners to screen, diagnose, treat and/or monitor their patients within the primary care setting.

Through online learning and interactive face to face teaching, participants of this course 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, and
  • recognise risk factors, clinical signs, symptoms and complications of advanced liver disease and manage or refer to specialist care appropriately.

For more information, please download the flyer or contact Sam Hoang on (02) 8204 0740 or email Sam.Hoang@ashm.org.au.
