Be Liver Smart – Free hepatitis C workshop for nurses
15 May, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Make curing hepatitis C your next greatest achievement!
Hepatitis Queensland is running 2 nurse education workshops in the Brisbane North to increase testing and treatment in the region as part of the Be Liver Smart project. Workshop is free with light dinner provided.
In the Brisbane North region, only 16.2% of the estimated 8,743 people living with hepatitis C have been treated. Queenslanders may not be coming forward for a number of reasons including being diagnosed decades ago, not prioritising their own health care or treatment and/or misinformation regarding the effects of the old treatments. The new treatments are easy, tablets taken daily with minimal side effects.
Don’t miss out on this event where you’ll get to learn about how hep C treatment can be easily managed in the community setting and go through real life case studies.
Let’s all do our part in eliminating hepatitis C and reach WHO elimination goals!
