Several challenges to the general practice response to hepatitis B are described, including poor knowledge of hepatitis B, lack of awareness of clinical management processes, poor specialist referral processes and inadequate financial support for hepatitis B management.
In spite of these concerns and with the escalating mortality resulting from hepatitis B- related liver cancer, its management within primary care services is supported. This research investigates general practice responses to hepatitis B by aiming to identify systematic enablers to the clinical management of people with hepatitis B within these settings.
