Hello,

Hepatitis Queensland is today publishing its new fact sheet on Importing new hepatitis C medications in Australia.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the 43 people who responded to the draft feedback survey, and to those who promoted it.

Survey results revealed that 89% of respondents rated the draft factsheet either ‘Excellent’ (47%), ‘Good’ (35%), or ‘Adequate’ (7%), with an additional 7% reporting that it ‘Needs Improvement’ and 5% ‘Don't know’. “Clear, concise and easy to understand” was one of the most common types of comments received.

As a result of the detailed suggestions we received in the survey and other emails, we have now made 9 changes to produce this published version. More changes are expected in the coming months as new information becomes available.

Please promote and share this new fact sheet with your friends, colleagues, and networks, order free copies, and contact us if you have additional questions, or suggestions for future versions.

As the fact sheet says, “As soon as we have more information, we will share this with our Members, email networks, social media, and website. In the mean-time we need your help to spread the word, raise awareness, and urge the government to fund new medications right now.”

Thank you for your support.

Regards

New factsheet: Importing new hepatitis C medications in Australia

Hello,

Hepatitis Queensland is today publishing its new fact sheet on Importing new hepatitis C medications in Australia.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the 43 people who responded to the draft feedback survey, and to those who promoted it.

Survey results revealed that 89% of respondents rated the draft factsheet either ‘Excellent’ (47%), ‘Good’ (35%), or ‘Adequate’ (7%), with an additional 7% reporting that it ‘Needs Improvement’ and 5% ‘Don't know’. “Clear, concise and easy to understand” was one of the most common types of comments received.

As a result of the detailed suggestions we received in the survey and other emails, we have now made 9 changes to produce this published version. More changes are expected in the coming months as new information becomes available.

Please promote and share this new fact sheet with your friends, colleagues, and networks, order free copies, and contact us if you have additional questions, or suggestions for future versions.

As the fact sheet says, “As soon as we have more information, we will share this with our Members, email networks, social media, and website. In the mean-time we need your help to spread the word, raise awareness, and urge the government to fund new medications right now.”

Thank you for your support.

Regards
Clint Ferndale
CEO
