People who inject drugs represent approximately 90% of newly acquired hepatitis C infections. Clinicians in drug and alcohol settings play an important role in improving the health outcomes of people living with hepatitis C and can reduce a patient’s risk of developing advanced liver disease through early diagnosis, appropriate management of co-morbidities and treatment with new, curative, Direct Acting Antiviral medication (DAAs).
This highly interactive course is designed to strengthen the capacity of clinical staff working in drug and alcohol settings, or working with people who inject drugs, to effectively test for, treat and manage hepatitis C. The online learning and face-face workshop will give you the skills to confidently prescribe the new DAAs.
Dr Adrian Dunlop, Area Director & Senior Staff Specialist, Drug & Alcohol Clinical Services, Hunter New England Local Health District & Chief Addiction Medicine Specialist, Alcohol and other Drugs Branch, Centre for Population Health, NSW Ministry of Health and several other local experts, will facilitate the interactive workshop.
