Overview

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a highly effective strategy for preventing HIV transmission; however, it is reaching only a small fraction of eligible individuals. Primary care providers have a unique opportunity to reduce the burden of HIV by routinely screening patients at risk and providing interventions for HIV prevention, such as PrEP. This case simulation activity is designed to improve the clinical decision making for HIV prevention and the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as an evidence-based intervention to prevent HIV transmission. It will allow participants to make decisions and view the potential outcomes of their choices within the content of the scenario. In addition, this interactive case simulation will be interspersed with faculty commentary to provide strategies for taking a sexual health assessment and practical guidance implementing PrEP in the primary care setting.

Target Audience

The intended audience for the activity is primary care physicians and other health care professionals involved in the care of patients at risk for HIV.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify patients infected with HIV via the use of established screening guidelines and available detection methods.
  • Employ counseling strategies to engage patients in behaviors that reduce the risk of HIV infection.
  • Implement PrEP in appropriate patients based on established guidelines and proper monitoring.
