Preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an essential tool in the prevention of HIV infection. While oral PrEP medications have been available for several years, there are still challenges with getting PrEP to eligible people and overcoming barriers to adherence. Recently, a long-acting injectable option has become available, which could address some of the challenges that PrEP users experience. Long-Acting Injectable PrEP: Bringing HIV Prevention to a New Level is a multimedia training program consisting of 4 brief circuits that will improve your endurance and build your knowledge about using long-acting injectable PrEP for HIV prevention. Drs. Colleen Kelley and Ian Frank will coach learners through key points and practical considerations for this new type of PrEP.
You will start your workout with an overview of HIV burden, the current status of PrEP in the United States, and the evidence on long-acting injectable PrEP. Next, you will build your knowledge of how to implement long-acting injectable PrEP, from determining eligibility to on-treatment monitoring and navigating transitions. Finally, you will flex your patient communication skills and hear a patient’s perspective on long-acting injectable PrEP.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of current PrEP providers and other primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants involved in the prevention of HIV in their patients.
After completing this activity, participants will be better prepared to:
- Describe the mechanisms, efficacy, and safety of long-acting PrEP agents
- Review protocols for the implementation of long-acting injectable PrEP agents into clinical practice for HIV prevention
- Develop optimal treatment strategies that address patient-specific factors and preferences
