RACGP webinar: Hepatitis B for Primary Care Providers

Tuesday 22 February 2022, 7:00pm - 8.30pm (AEDT)

In 2020, an estimated 222,559 people were living with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) in Australia; of these, 27% were undiagnosed, and 77.4% were not engaged in regular care. Primary care practitioners play a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of CHB in the community, and in reducing preventable deaths from liver cancer.

At the end of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Identify priority populations for hepatitis B testing in Australia.
  • Interpret hepatitis B serology results.
  • Describe the role of primary care in the testing, diagnosis and management of patients with hepatitis B in the community.
