Webinar: The A-Z of Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B has a prevalence of up to 15 per cent in some of the more vulnerable people in our practices, with a mortality of 25 per cent if left untreated.
Over the last 20 years management of Hepatitis B has changed dramatically. It is now a vaccine-preventable and treatable disease.
Diagnosis, monitoring and, in many cases, treatment of hepatitis B is the responsibility of general practitioners in Australia. Understanding how and when to diagnose, monitor, treat and refer is complex. This webinar will update you on the latest best practice and provide opportunity for questions and discussion.
Presented by Senior Medical Educator Dr Jill Benson and facilitated by Senior Medical Educator Dr Simon Hay, this webinar is aimed at senior registrars soon moving into practice as a registered GP.
