Activity Description

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) research is undergoing an era of rapid change and advancement in treatment approaches. Historically complex drug regimens are being simplified, less-toxic alternative therapies are proving equally effective to older agents, and novel dosage forms on the horizon are expected to impact patient care and outcomes. Advances in therapeutic approaches have allowed patients living with HIV to lead fairly normal lives without the disease significantly interfering with quality of life and the potential to entirely halt progression. However, staying informed about the latest recommendations and newly available drugs and drug combinations is often challenging for many pharmacy professionals.

This session will discuss strategies to identify patients at risk for HIV and implement screening guideline recommendations. Current recommendations for treatment initiation and regimen selection in patients with co-morbidities or previous treatment failures will be discussed, including dosing and monitoring requirements. A focus on recently approved therapies and emerging treatment options will be presented. The activity will also address principles for PEP and PrEP prescribing and monitoring schedules.

 

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes clinical pharmacists, community pharmacists, specialty pharmacists, and managed care professionals. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be better able to:

  • Identify individuals at risk for HIV infection and outline screening guidelines.
  • Examine therapy options for treatment naïve patients and antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimen selection for patients with treatment failure or comorbidities.
  • Recognize recently approved and emerging pipeline agents for treatment of HIV and identify their place in therapy.
  • Discuss techniques to improve uptake and adherence to ART in patients with HIV.
  • Outline current guideline recommendations for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) prescribing and monitoring schedule.
