Beyond the C – Hepatitis C Elimination in Your Practice

ABOUT

Beyond the C – Hepatitis C Elimination in Your Practice

Beyond the C – Hepatitis C Elimination in Your Practice aims to increase the number of patients screened, tested, treated and linked to appropriate care for hepatitis C in General Practice.  

The Project will equip eligible participants with the necessary skills and resources to conduct hepatitis C case finding and clinical auditing within their own practice to improve the identification of new cases, follow up, treatment and monitoring.  

Practices will be guided by our General Practice Nurse Consultant to utilise their Medical Software System and implement quality improvement activities. The Project is designed to be embedded into current practice processes, ensuring a streamlined and sustainable way to build team capacity and improve care for patients living with hepatitis C.
