HealthTrust presents…”Perinatal HIV Exposure: Antiretroviral Management”

In 2010, the White House released the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which set a goal to reduce newly diagnosed perinatally acquired HIV cases to 191 infants. With the introduction of universal prenatal HIV testing, antiretroviral prophylaxis, and other interventions, the incidence of transmission in the United States has dramatically decreased in recent years. This session will provide an overview of the current recommendations and literature supporting antiretroviral management in neonates and their mothers. Topics discussed will include infant antiretroviral prophylaxis and maternal antepartum and intrapartum antiretroviral therapy.

Learning Objectives for Pharmacist member attendees:

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify key components of preventing HIV transmission from mother to infant
  2. Analyze pivotal trials that established the standard of care for intrapartum and postpartum HIV prophylaxis
  3. Compare infant antiretroviral prophylaxis regimens in regard to efficacy and safety profiles

 Learning Objectives for Pharmacy Technician member attendees:

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. List risk factors that increase transmission of HIV from mother to infant
  2. Identify neonatal HIV medications that are classified as hazardous drugs
  3. Implement National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health strategies to handle hazardous medications
