Viral Hepatitis Mentoring Program

This program has been developed in response to feedback from GPs and specialists linked with the Viral Hepatitis Community Prescriber Programs.

  • Further develop skills in communication, giving feedback and sharing best practice
  • Pass on personal knowledge, insight and experience
  • Stay in touch with emerging issues in viral hepatitis
  • Gain access to one-on-one support
  • Be involved in the development of a community of practice based on mutual support and respect
  • Make use of a framework for discussing complex cases
