New resources to aid in hepatitis C care

The Australasian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) has developed a new range of hepatitis C resources to support health professionals working with people who have been diagnosed with hepatitis C.

The four new resources now available are:

  • GPs and Hepatitis C: designed to assist GPs in their vital role of diagnosing, supporting, assessing, referring and treating people living with chronic hepatitis C.
  • Decision Making in HCV: a two-page laminate resource for GPs and practice nurses. It is a quick reference guide that can assist in evaluating hepatitis C laboratory results and making decisions about the management and treatment of patients with hepatitis C.
  • Nurses and Hepatitis C: developed for nurses who care for people living with hepatitis C. It is aligned with the Australasian Hepatology Association's Competency Standards for the Hepatology Nurse and the consensus-based Nursing Guidelines for the Care of Patients with Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Advanced Liver Disease and Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
  • Dental and Orofacial Health and Hepatitis C: an update written by dentists that provides an overview of the oral manifestations and complications associated with hepatitis C and its treatments.

ASHM resources can be accessed and ordered at www.ashm.org.au/resources.
