Course Overview

The C the Whole Story Forum brings together Nurses, Community-based workers, NSP Workers, and Peer Workers from around Australia to share their experiences, strategies for success, and innovative approaches to providing treatment to people living with hepatitis C in housing and homelessness, AOD (alcohol and other drugs), and mental health settings.

Hear from a series of dynamic keynote speakers, including people with a living or lived experience, as well as presentations on innovative models of care and approaches to providing hepatitis C testing, treatment, and support across these settings. As a participant, you will have access to a Q&A with speakers and participate in break-out sessions to network and discuss opportunities for implementing different approaches to your service.
