HEPReady® is a suite of training courses developed for community and health workers to further knowledge of, and take the fear away from, viral hepatitis and other liver conditions. The online HEPReady® Essentials accredited course is designed for health and community workers who want a comprehensive overview of viral hepatitis and liver health. The training features a lived experience speaker and is designed to combat stigma and discrimination around viral hepatitis and correcting myths and misconceptions that can trigger misinformation.

HEPReady® Essentials is endorsed by the Australian Primary Healthcare Nurses Association (APNA) and attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion. On completing HEPReady® Essentials you will receive 3.0 continuing professional education (CPE) points.
