Presented with his usual idiosyncratic style! Great for revision and to learn about the cutting edge of HBV management.
Challenging fallacies of Hepatitis B: (see second presentation)
- “HBV has been solved as a public health problem due to universal infant immunisation”
- “The treatments for HBV don’t work very well”
- “It is not viable to treat remote-dwelling Indigenous people for HBV”
- “HBV may be common but it doesn’t cause much morbidity or mortality”
Hepatitis C update to come!
