Hepatitis C in Primary Care and Drug and Alcohol Settings Education Program
Open access online learning modules
This online learning course consists of various individual modules that should be completed in sequential order. Each module will take you approximately 30 minutes to complete and all modules must be completed prior to attending a workshop. Or, you can complete the online learning independently.
The highly interactive workshops give participants an opportunity to put learning into practice. Facilitated by local experts in the field, the workshop is structured around real-life case studies giving attendees the skills to confidently manage patients with hepatitis C.
The workshops are free to attend, but places are limited so registration is essential.
