New pilot project to improve hep B outcomes for at-risk patients

Burnet Institute, 28 June, 2016

Improved screening of patients at risk of hepatitis B is the aim of a new pilot project underway in Victoria, with early diagnosis and treatment crucial to reduce the risk of liver cancer.

Cancer Council Victoria and Burnet Institute’s Screening for Hepatitis in At-Risk Populations (SHARP) project will trial four new interventions to help diagnose hepatitis B in GP clinics.

The project is targeting patients from countries where hepatitis B is endemic, including Somalia, Sudan, China and Vietnam.
