Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of HIV-treating physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses.

Program Overview

As rapid antiretroviral therapy (ART) has been recommended for several years and clinics have demonstrated successful implementation, its use has become more widespread. Clinics, however, often still face implementation or staffing barriers and some struggle to refine their ART initiation protocols. In this self-directed video-based activity, Dr. Jason Halperin answers commonly asked questions about workflow protocols, staffing, increasing patient access to providers, eligibility for rapid ART, and how to handle patient re-entry to care.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Identify effective strategies to streamline workflow processes to optimize implementation of rapid ART
  • Define strategies beyond ART implementation that support care of the whole patient and encourage treatment adherence, including referral to wraparound services
