Telehealth for hepatitis C treatment: Report launch and findings from a national qualitative study
This forum presents findings from a study on the use of telehealth for hepatitis C treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Conducted by researchers at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, and funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health, this qualitative interview-based project aimed to understand the benefits, limitations, and effects of the use of telehealth for hepatitis C treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The forum will also include the launch of the report based on the findings from the study and discuss its key recommendations for the hepatitis C sector. The report synthesises the main findings of the project and makes recommendations to support the hepatitis C sector in optimising the use of telehealth where it is effective and valuable.
The forum will involve a panel discussion on the implications of the research findings and recommendations and will invite thoughts from panel participants on how these recommendations might inform sector development and the uptake of telehealth.
Speakers in order of appearance: Emily Lenton (Project Coordinator, BBV Program, ARCSHS, La Trobe University); Prof Suzanne Fraser (Director, ARCSHS, La Trobe University); Carrie Fowlie (CEO, Hepatitis Australia); Dr David Iser (Gastroenterologist, St Vincent’s Hospital/Scope Gastroenterology; Esha Leyden (Peer Harm Reduction Worker, QuIHN); Dr Renae Fomiatti (Research Officer, ARCSHS, La Trobe University) and Dr Frances Shaw (Research Officer, ARCSHS, La Trobe University).
We invite all relevant healthcare practitioners, service providers, researchers and other professionals working in hepatitis C healthcare, policy, advocacy and research to attend.

Presented by: The Drugs, Gender and Sexuality Program (DruGS) and the Blood-Borne Virus Sector Development Program, both based at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society
