Assessment of Needs
This webinar will provide a concise summary of the latest 2021 update to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) guidelines. The guidelines include new clinical guidance for the prescription of cabotegravir injections as PrEP for sexually active adults, which was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in December 2021. Additionally, it provides key changes in testing and monitoring patients who are starting or taking PrEP.
This webinar is part 1 of a 2-part webinar series on the updated PrEP guidelines. Part 2 will discuss the implementation of long-acting PrEP in a clinic, in a case-based panel discussion. Date and time to be announced.
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Assess HIV trends, prevalence, and infection rates in the United States
- Explain the impact and status of PrEP for the HIV prevention goals of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative
- Describe updates to the latest PrEP guidelines, including new clinical guidance for the prescription of cabotegravir injections as PrEP
- Identify key changes in testing and monitoring patients who are starting or taking PrEP
- List strategies for identifying and engaging patients who could benefit from HIV prevention (eg, the syndemic approach and status neutral service delivery)
