  • Over 100,000 Victorians live with chronic viral hepatitis
  • More than 1 in 4 Australians need support for their liver health
  • Alcoholic and non-alcoholic liver disease is dramatically increasing.

The online HEPReady Essentials accredited course is designed for health and community workers who want a comprehensive overview of viral hepatitis and liver health. HEPReady Essentials is endorsed by the Australian Primary Healthcare Nurses Association (APNA) and attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion.

The training features a lived experience speaker and is designed to combat the stigma and discrimination around viral hepatitis and correcting the myths and misconceptions that can trigger misinformation. HEPReady Essentials achieves this by encouraging health professionals to initiate conversations about viral hepatitis with their patients and clients, to work with empathy and to empower their patients to take control of their health.
