Chronic hepatitis B (CHB) is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality rates which are attributable to liver cancer, cirrhosis and liver failure.

In Australia there are approximately 218 000 people living with chronic hepatitis B. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make up 2.6% of the Australian population, yet account for 10% of Australians living with CHB. Treatment for hepatitis B can reduce a patient’s risk of liver cancer by 50% in a few years.

 

 

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

Limited travel scholarships are available for AHWs and clinical staff travelling from regional AMS services. Please contact May Wang at 02 8204 0723 or May.Wang@ashm.org.au for further information.
