Applications are still available for Beyond the – Hepatitis C Elimination in Your Practice. This national project aims to equip eligible health practitioners with the necessary skills and resources to conduct hepatitis C case finding within their own practice, to improve the identification of new cases, follow up, treatment and monitoring.
Practices are guided by our General Practice Nurse Consultant who tailors support required. Those who sign up to the Project will be:
- Eligible to receive an auxiliary payment of $900
- Supported to develop sustainable skills in leading quality improvement activities
- Eligible to claim Continuing Professional Development hours or points with professional bodies such as the RACGP
- Helping to cure HCV in their practice population and meet global HCV elimination targets
Throughout the course of the project, our General Practice Nurse Consultant and ASHM Project Team will work with individual practices to identify challenges and enablers of successful case finding such as data searches, working with your practice software to identify patients for recall, and effective collaboration with local Primary Health Networks (PHN’s).
You can view the introductory project webinar here to learn more about the benefits of the project (GPs, Practice Managers and General Practice Nurses) and how to enrol. A secondary webinar to support your work in hepatitis C will be held in late February. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest in registering for the webinar. Further information can also be found at www.beyondthec.com.au.
