This Education Program is designed to enable participants to test for, manage and treat hepatitis C. Course participants will have the confidence, knowledge and clinical decision-making skills to be able to prescribe DAAs for the treatment of HCV infection, either independently or in collaboration with a specialist as appropriate.
This course is being offered in collaboration with The Kirby Institute, UNSW Australia, and the Queensland Network of Alcohol and Other Drug Agencies.
The course will be delivered in three parts:
• Part 1 consists of an eLearning component of approximately 2 hours’ duration. It comprises 4 modules introducing the learner to topics related to the assessment, management and treatment of hepatitis C in drug and alcohol settings.
• Part 2 consists of an interactive face-to-face workshop building on the knowledge and skills gained in Part 1 by enabling practical and collaborative application of concepts and theory through case discussions and simulation-based models.
• Part 3 consists of a tailor capacity strengthening toolkit including: a checklist for the assessment and treatment of HCV in drug and alcohol settings; local referral pathways; Fibroscan® access forms; assessment pro forma; and quick reference guides.
