PPP048 - HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis
Dan discusses PREPx with three experts: A/Prof Edwina Wright from The Alfred, Monash Uni and The Burnet Institute, Alison Duncan, Lead Pharmacist for HIV at The Alfred and Luxi Lal, Pharmacist and Scientist from the Burnet Institute.
We were so fortunate to have Edwina - who ran the pivotal Australian trials and was so kind in sharing her knowledge with us.
We learn about:
- How the key Australian studies were set up and run
- Novel dosing modalities
- Information for pharmacists and key counselling points for dispensing PREP
- Side effects and monitoring with PREP
- How PREP is changing the paradigm of HIV prevention
