dc.description.abstractTo explore the feasibility of an ED chronic hepatitis B (CHB) screening programme. Adult patients born in intermediate-high CHB prevalent regions completed a pre-screening questionnaire and were offered CHB testing. ED staff were surveyed to gauge potential barriers to the programme. Eighty patients demonstrated limited knowledge of hepatitis B virus transmission and perceived many barriers to screening. Among 65 tested for CHB, no new cases were detected but 36 (55.4%, 95% CI 42.6-67.5) were susceptible to infection. Staff supported the programme but reported potential barriers. Targeted ED CHB screening is feasible but effectiveness and cost-effectiveness need further exploration.-
