HeBOOC is a free online course on hepatitis B clinical management for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical technologists, and other health care workers.
In Thailand, more than 2 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis B virus. Many do not know that they are infected. Treatment to help prevent life-threatening complications is available but most of those infected have never been evaluated for treatment. More health care workers could contribute to the management of HBV infection and HeBOOC has been designed to help understand HBV infection and learn the basics of its management.
The training is based on the 2015 WHO guidelines. However, please note
that the current English version has been primarily developed for Thailand.
Available in Thai and English on tablets, PCs and smartphones.
