In collaboration with the Southeast AIDS Education & Training Center.
This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Gilead Sciences, Inc.
- Physicians — maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
- Nurses — 1.5 Contact Hours (0.5 contact hour of pharmacotherapy credit)
- Pharmacists — 1.5 Contact Hours
All other healthcare professionals completing this course will be issued a statement of participation.
This activity is designed specifically for primary care clinicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other members of the healthcare team who serve patients in rural and underserved communities.
Access to specialists is limited in rural and underserved communities, making it critically important for primary care clinicians to be trained on the use of HIV prevention strategies. In this activity, which is part of a two-part series titled PrEP Uptake and Delivery: Strategies for Reducing Barriers in Rural and Underserved Communities, expert faculty will discuss available formulations for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and considerations for its use in different populations. Best practices for initiating and maintaining patients on PrEP will also be reviewed through a series of interspersed discussions centered around realistic patient case scenarios.
This activity is a recording from a two-part webinar series that took place in August 2023. Please note that any data, information, and guidance presented in the activity are subject to change.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Identify individuals who may be eligible for PrEP through comprehensive and routine sexual history-taking
- Apply evidence-based recommendations and best practices for PrEP initiation, management, and monitoring
- Employ novel approaches and evidence-based interventions for PrEP to improve uptake, adherence, and persistence
