Hepatitis C – Towards Elimination

6:30pm to 9:00pm
2 August 2017
Hotel Realm, 18 National Circuit, Barton, ACT

Event Detail

Local information to give you confidence in treating and curing your patients

By the end of 2016 around 15% of the ~230,000 people with hepatitis C had initiated treatment with the new direct-acting antiviral therapies. This remarkable advance on previous achievements has many now aspiring to eliminate hepatitis C as a public health concern in Australia by 2030.

This is a challenge for all, given almost 11,000 new hepatitis C notifications each year and the many thousands previously diagnosed but lost to follow-up. Primary healthcare now has a critical and increasing role to play in hepatitis C diagnosis, treatment and care.

This activity will be submitted to RACGP for Category 2 Activity CPD points in the QI & CPD Program for 2017 – 2019 Triennium – pending for approval.

RSVP: Monday 31 July 2017, with dietary requirements: info [at] hepatitisACT.com.au Phone: (02) 6230 6344 Fax: (02) 6230 6266
