ASHM administers the Hepatitis B s100 Community Prescriber Program.
The program provides initial training, ongoing support and continuing professional development (CPD) activities for general practitioners prescribing Highly Specialised Drugs for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B in all states and territories across Australia. From 1 July 2015, accredited prescribers are able to initiate treatment and the medications can be dispensed in the community.
Expressions of interest and general enquiries can be directed to HBVprescriber@ashm.org.au.
Victorian HIV and Hepatitis Integrated Training And Learning (VHHITAL), in partnership with ASHM, North West Melbourne PHN (NWMPHN), Alfred Health, and the Doherty Institute, provides training for Victorian GPs in hepatitis B medicine.
