Of people living with hepatitis B (chronic hepatitis B, CHB) in Australia, 43% remain undiagnosed. Without appropriate management, up to 1 in 4 people with CHB will die from liver cancer or liver failure. Timely diagnosis and clinical management, including the prescription of antiviral therapy, can prevent cancer and save lives.
Hepatitis B can now be managed as a chronic condition in general practice. The aim of this audit and training is to address some of the major issues in the management of hepatitis B as a long-term condition and improve communication between general practitioners, specialists and patients.
