ASHM administers the Hepatitis B s100 Prescriber Program for general practitioners, other community-based medical practitioners, and nurse practitioners.  

For information on how to become a prescriber, please refer to Hepatitis B s100 Prescriber Program Handbook or contact us at HBVPrescriber@ashm.org.au. Please note that the Hepatitis B s100 Prescriber Program Handbook is currently being updated to align with changes which came into effect on 1 April 2020.

 

 

The program provides initial training, ongoing support and continuing professional development (CPD) activities for general practitioners, other community based medical practitioners, and nurse practitioners prescribing Highly Specialised Drugs for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B in all states and territories across Australia. From 1 July 2015, accredited prescribers are able to initiate treatment and the medications can be dispensed in the community and from 1 April 2020, authorised nurse practitioners are included as prescribers for s100 HBV medications. 

Victorian HIV and Hepatitis Integrated Training And Learning (VHHITAL), in partnership with ASHM, North West Melbourne PHN (NWMPHN), Alfred Health, and the Doherty Institute, provides training for Victorian GPs in hepatitis B medicine.  For further information about the VHHITAL program, please email the VHHITAL program team  at vhhital@nwmphn.org.au or call (03) 9347 1188.
