Prescribing Antivirals to COVID-19 positive patients
While at present in WA most COVID positive patients are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms, there are some who are at risk of severe disease that might benefit from the newly available antiviral treatments.

GPs are being called on to make decisions regarding the appropriateness of these medications to treat COVID-19, based on the patient’s individual risk for disease progression, medical history, current medicines, age and COVID-19 vaccination status. Join us to find out more about the indications and contraindications for the new antivirals, the GP's role in assessing patients and prescribing these treatments, as well as the pathways for accessing them.

This interactive and informative webinar will be hosted by Dr Sean Stevens, Principal GP and practice owner at Next Practice in Victoria Park.

Panellists include:
• Prof Alison Jones, A/Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health
• Dr Claire Italiano, Infectious Diseases Physician, Royal Perth Hospital
• Dr Cory Lei, Clinical Editor, HealthPathways WA
• Dr Kylie Sterry, GP at Kalgoorlie GP Respiratory Clinic

By the end of this session participants will be able to:
• Navigate the COVID-19 Assessment and Management HealthPathway to find information about accessing antiviral treatments
• Discuss the key indications and contraindications associated with the available antiviral treatments available for COVID-19 positive patients.
