Sarah Roush, MSPH, CHES, Senior Sexual + Reproductive Health Program Manager
André Mirassou-Molette, Community Embedded Disease Intervention Specialist
What will you learn?
Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a highly effective prevention tool for individuals at risk for HIV. This webinar will describe PrEP effectiveness and eligibility guidelines, and emphasize common barriers to PrEP access in the clinic setting. Focusing on key points of patient contact, the presenters will discuss methods to develop a clinic culture that is supportive of PrEP, and concrete tools to support rollout and implementation of this critical intervention. Presenters also will emphasize the clinic-wide issues necessary to support a successful PrEP program; but please note that this webinar will not focus on PrEP prescribing or clinical considerations.
After this session participants will be able to:
- Identify appropriate candidates for PrEP education and services
- Describe solutions to at least three common barriers to PrEP access in the community clinic setting
- List at least one new PrEP-related resource or tool
