Upcoming Webinar: Optimizing PrEP in Practice: Guidelines & Clinical Considerations (March 24)Posted March 5, 2022
How do the latest CDC’s Clinical Practice PrEP Guidelines affect you, your patients, and your practice?
PrEP is a vital tool in our efforts to End the HIV Epidemic in the US. In December 2021, CDC published the Clinical Practice Guideline for Preexposure Prophylaxis for HIV Prevention and Clinical Providers Supplement. This document serves as a guidepost for data-driven PrEP delivery and reflects the latest evidence and FDA guidance for PrEP prescribing, the policy implications on newly FDA-approved long-acting products, and the multiple ways in which patients are on-boarded into the PrEP intervention system.
Join Dr. Demetre Daskalakis, CDC’s Director of the Division of HIV Prevention, on Thursday, March 24, 2022 at 1:00pm EDT at as he delves into these clinical guidelines and reviews the latest PrEP science. Following his presentation, Dr. Anu Hazra will speak to the clinical considerations of the guidelines from a PrEP provider standpoint, followed by a moderated Q & A session with both faculty.
