ASHM 1st Annual Hepatitis B Prescriber Forum
ASHM is pleased to announce that the first annual Hepatitis Prescriber Forum will be held online.
The Hepatitis B Prescriber Forum is a half-day forum designed for hepatitis B s100 prescribers that will cover current and relevant sector priorities and topics
With expert panels and interactive case discussions, the 2023 Hepatitis B Prescriber Forum is an opportunity to dive deep into emerging areas of hepatitis B treatment and management and discuss the contemporary issues facing hepatitis B clinical care in Australia.
• Describe barriers to accessing hepatitis B management, treatment, and linkage to care
• Evaluate hepatitis B patients’ suitability for monitoring and treatment
• Develop guideline-based approaches for managing patients with hepatitis B, referring to both clinical- and community-facing resources
The theme of the forum is: Models of Care, with topics such as:
• Patient centred care
• Perspectives of Nurse Practitioner prescribers
• Navigating Medicare
• Provision of care to patients from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
The forum aims to facilitate a highly skilled multidisciplinary workforce that is respectful of and responsive to the needs of priority populations for hepatitis B and aware of new research and issues in the sectors.
The full program will be released shortly.
