This update will provide GPs with the knowledge to engage their patients in care, perform investigations to assess for advanced liver disease and increase confidence to prescribe new hepatitis C treatments in consultation with, or without, a specialist.

 

 

Primary care practitioners in ACT can help to improve the health outcomes of people living with hepatitis C and reduce a patient’s risk of developing advanced liver disease through early diagnosis, thorough evaluation and assessment of liver disease severity, appropriate management of co-morbidities and preparation for new treatments.

Learning outcomes:

o Interpret test results and diagnose hepatitis C appropriately

o Ensure that people at risk of hepatitis C infection are regularly screened

o Manage and monitor people with chronic hepatitis C suitably, including lifestyle modifications as needed

o Assess for advanced liver disease, monitor for hepatocellular carcinoma and refer appropriately

o Describe new treatment guidelines and mechanisms for prescribing in consultation with, or without, a specialist.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Primary care providers, primary health care professionals, GPs, nurses, allied health
