In this live webinar Dr Ed Gane, international hepatitis C expert, Professor of Medicine at the University of Auckland and chief hepatologist at Auckland City Hospital’s liver transplant unit discussed eradicating hepatitis C in NZ, and the central role that general practice can play.

Dr Gane used cases of acute presentation to chronic presentation and how oral medication, available in primary care can cure the disease.

Reading the BPAC article:The treatment of hepatitis C has changed (2016) is a useful pre-read.
