Our Online Learning Modules are a simple introduction to hepatitis B and hepatitis C for anyone working with people affected by or at risk of these viruses. This might include people who work in:
- Community services
- Harm reduction
- Alcohol and other drugs
- Non-clinical health services
- Mental health services
- Youth services
The modules provide general information and not designed for health professionals. While these modules are available to all, the content is not for clinical practice and is not to be considered medical advice.
How Long Does It Take To Study?
These Online Learning Modules take just 15-20 minutes each to complete. Each section ends with a short quiz to check your knowledge of hep B and C, and a survey at the end to evaluate the modules.
What Will You Learn About Hep B and C?
When you study our online learning modules you’ll gain a general introduction to hepatitis B and C. As part of your free study you’ll learn about the following core topics:
- Hepatitis B and C transmission and prevention
- The impact and landscape of hep B and C in Australia
- Testing for hep B and C
- Information on the hep C cure
- Hep B vaccination, check-ups and treatment
- Issues for people living with hepatitis B and C such as liver health and discrimination,
- And how you can make a difference to hep B and C in Australia.
- There is an optional module giving an overview of blood-borne viruses in the workplace.
These two programs will take you through a total of 11 modules of information (5 on hep C and 6 on hep B). Both include a quiz, followed by a brief survey.
Learn About Hepatitis B and C In The Workplace
These Online Learning Modules do not replace our half- or full-day education sessions, such as our Get Bloody Serious workshop. You can also book an education session at your workplace, or attend a workshop at our office, to educate and support staff and clients that may be affected by hep B or C.
Hepatitis NSW would like to thank to the Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network for providing funding to make the development of these Online Learning Modules possible.
