The COVID-19 pandemic led to a shift in employees working from home, increased reliance on telehealth and remote work technologies, and massive employee turnover rates. With the vaccine rollout well underway and organizations preparing to return to in-person visits, the MAAETC wants to use this opportunity to educate new employees and re-educate those who were inundated with COVID-19 information. This webinar is a part of a 5-webinar series that will focus on the core tenets of HIV treatment.
Session 2: HIV Prevention Overview will focus on defining and describing HIV prevention tools and practices.
By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
Describe the HIV Prevention Toolbox and discuss the use of the prevention measures.
Discuss how to assess patients for PrEP use and how to initiate treatment.
Describe how to monitor PrEP use and discuss best practices for helping patients stay adherent.
Discuss the role of PrEP in the MSM of Color community.
