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 (HCV), within a General Practice setting. Health practitioners who sign up will be guided by our General Practice Nurse Consultant to conduct HCV case finding and clinical auditing within their own practice, to improve the identification of new cases, follow up, treatment and monitoring.

 

Those who sign up to the Project will be:

  • Eligible to receive practice funding, up to $12,500 per quarter through the Department of Health’s Practice Incentive Program Quality Improvement (PIP QI)
  • Supported to develop sustainable skills in leading quality improvement activities
  • Eligible to claim Continuing Medical Education hours with professional bodies such as RACGP
  • Helping to eliminate HCV within their practice, within Australia and to meet global elimination targets
