Testing and treating hepatitis C in General Practice

Webinar 14 May, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM (AEST)

Many people with hepatitis C (HCV) can be tested and treated in general practice without specialist referral or care. GPs can prescribe direct acting antiviral (DAA) medicines for uncomplicated HCV infections after a simple assessment.
This session aims to increase awareness of HCV testing and treatment options and how to manage patients living with HCV in general practice settings.

Learning outcomes

  1. Increase GP confidence in identifying patients for testing, including how to initiate a testing discussion.
  2. List hepatitis C testing options and how to interpret results.
  3. Discuss hepatitis C treatment options and how to prescribe.
  4. Identify which patients require specialist care and referral options
