Primary care practitioners can play a crucial role in vastly improving the health outcomes of their Italian-speaking patients through early diagnosis and appropriate management of hepatitis B. Liver cancer, a large proportion of which is attributable to hepatitis B, is the fastest increasing cause of cancer death in Australia. Studies have shown that antiviral therapy for CHB can reduce the risk of liver cancer by 50% in only a few years.

Learning Outcomes:

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

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

• Describe the intervention points throughout the natural history of HBV.

• Identify treatment options and the need for lifelong monitoring for people living with chronic hepatitis B.
