“The Treating Hepatitis C in General Practice Forum is an excellent opportunity for General Practitioners to share their knowledge and experiences of curing hepatitis c in their communities. General Practitioners can present their clinical research, upskill on areas of treatment and share solutions which can then be applied back in their practices. It is always a practical and inspiring day, and I would strongly encourage any General Practitioner or interested General Practitioner registrar to be a part of the Forum” – Dr Nada Andric, chair of the GP Advisory Panel

 

This one-day forum brings together General Practitioners from around Australia to discuss their experiences, strategies for success and innovative models of care for the treatment of people living with hepatitis C in a range of primary care and priority settings.
