Please Note: Continuing education credit is only available to those attending the session live. CE credit is not available when accessing the program on demand.
Antiretroviral therapy has transformed HIV into a manageable and treatable, chronic condition. Beyond use for treatment of HIV, however, certain antiretroviral regimens have also demonstrated efficacy at preventing HIV in at-risk, uninfected individuals when taken as prophylaxis. In 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Clinical Practice Guideline Updates for preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) of HIV. This presentation will address the role of PrEP, review guideline updates and provide an overview of medications in the development pipeline and pharmacist’s role in PrEP.
Learning Objectives | At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Identify factors that increase the risk of HIV exposure
- Recall current guideline recommendations for utilizing antiretroviral medication for PrEP
- Recognize the roles of the pharmacist in HIV prevention
