Treatments for Hepatitis C with Direct Acting Antivirals: Training for HIV prescribers 

Hepatitis C has long been recognised as a major contributor to co-morbidity in people living with HIV. The HIV-HCV coinfected population is at high risk of accelerated progression to end stage liver disease, liver cancer and associated death. The availability of low toxicity directly acting antiviral drugs (DAA) is likely to revolutionise the potential for treatment on both an individual and population level basis, and are likely to be equally successful in HIV positive and negative individuals. Prescription of these regimens need to move from the specialist liver clinic to community based prescribers if large scale access to treatment is to be achieved. 

This one-day course is designed for current HIV prescribers in order to up-skill the primary care based workforce to broaden their clinical role in management of HIV/HCV co-infection into management of HCV mono-infection. Topics to be covered include: information about the CEASE project; emerging therapies; their timelines and implications for treatment decision making; DAAs for HIV/HCV co-infection; assessment of liver disease; and more. 

Date: Saturday 19 September 2015
Time: 9.00am - 5.00pm
