Treatment for hepatitis B can reduce a patient’s risk of liver cancer by 50% in a few years. Identifying and monitoring people with chronic hepatitis B infection allows for timely identification of cancer and liver disease, or even prevention, through the institution of effective treatment. Vaccination and treatment for hepatitis B is available and effective.

Learning Outcomes:

• Know who to test and how to interpret test results.

• Improve the outcome of patients through early diagnosis, follow up and appropriate management (including vaccination of contacts)

• Describe the intervention points throughout the natural history of HBV

• Identify the different treatment options available, and the need for lifelong monitoring, for people living with chronic HBV.

This is a FREE course for GPs, nurses and allied health workers.

The evening will be presented by Dr Ahmad Alrubaie, Gastroenterologist & Therapeutic Endoscopist in Bankstown and Liverpool NSW.
