Hepatitis C treatment and the role of the GP

On-demand recorded 18 Oct 2023

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection continues to result in significant morbidity and mortality in Australia. Even with direct-acting antivirals, eradication of HCV remains a challenge with many patients unaware of their infection.

This webinar explores the GP's role in treating HCV including:
- identifying at risk populations
- appropriate screening and testing
- signs and symptoms 
- managing patients, surveillance and follow-up
- when to refer, and
- what's new in this space

Upon completion of this webinar, you are invited to complete a mini-audit activity for 2 hours of Measuring Outcomes CPD. Access the the activity here.

Delivered in partnership with the WA Department of Health.

  1. Describe the appropriate screening and testing to diagnose Hepatitis C infection
