Donna E. Sweet, MD, AAHIVS, MACP - Creating an HIV Prevention–Certified Provider Workforce: A Training and Certificate Program Designed to Improve the Competencies of Providers to Deliver Comprehensive HIV Prevention

Go online to PeerView.com/BDE860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. No single prevention method or approach can stop the HIV epidemic on its own. Several interventions have proved highly effective in reducing the risk of, and protecting against, HIV infection, including male and female condoms, the use of antiretroviral medicines as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and the treatment of people living with HIV, to reduce viral load and prevent onward transmission. Despite the availability of this widening array of effective HIV prevention tools and a massive scale-up of HIV treatment in recent years, new infections among adults globally have not decreased sufficiently, and infections have actually increased in the United States among African American gay and bisexual men and Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men. Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued clinical practice guidelines for PrEP use in the United States, numerous implementation barriers remain, including questions about the effectiveness of PrEP, optimal settings for provision, cost, and the most effective ways to motivate healthcare practitioners to prescribe PrEP. Protocols to identify individuals who are most likely to benefit from PrEP have been developed, but addressing racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities poses additional challenges. This activity will marry Dr. Donna Sweet’s personal experiences in clinical utilization of HIV prevention strategies with practical, evidence-based guidance for patient care decisions, to provide additional motivation and rationale for participants to review their own current management strategies and adjust them as needed to optimize patient care. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Effectively engage patients in conversations about sexual health practice, to assess HIV risk factors and support their ability to have healthy sex lives, Develop comprehensive competencies (with a focus on pre-exposure prophylaxis [PrEP] interventions) based on a provider’s individual patient needs, Consider current evidence and individual patient needs/preferences when integrating HIV prevention options (eg, PrEP, post-exposure prophylaxis [PEP], viral suppression, female condoms) into clinical practice, Employ culturally competent educational and counseling strategies to improve the uptake of prevention measures among patients at increased risk for HIV infection, Facilitate access to HIV prevention options by effectively connecting patients to available resources, support, and assistance, Describe currently available tools that have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of HIV transmission or acquisition

Roy F. Chemaly, MD, MPH, FIDSA, FACP - Managing CMV in the New Era of Antiviral Therapy: Practical Considerations in the HCT Setting

Go online to PeerView.com/JVG860 to view the entire program with slides. Effective antiviral prophylaxis and therapy for opportunistic human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in transplant recipients and other immunocompromised hosts has long relied mainly on ganciclovir and its oral prodrug valganciclovir, with foscarnet and cidofovir in secondary roles. Use of these viral DNA polymerase inhibitors has improved clinical outcomes, particularly when used as prophylaxis or preventive therapy, but their use is associated with well-known limitations of toxicity as well as cross-resistance due to the same antiviral drug target. However, after many years of few tangible advances, we are now experiencing an exciting period characterized by novel antiviral agents for CMV. In this activity, based on a recent live symposium held at the 2019 TCT Meetings in Houston, Texas, experts discuss managing CMV in hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) recipients in a new era of antiviral therapy. Utilizing interactive clinical case scenarios, the expert faculty outlines best practices to prevent CMV infection in patients undergoing HCT and then examine the role of novel antiviral therapies in resistant/refractory CMV. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Identify unmet needs associated with the management of CMV infection in HCT recipients, Describe the efficacy and safety of novel strategies to prevent and treat CMV infection in the HCT setting, Integrate expert recommendations and recent evidence into the therapeutic decision-making process to prevent and treat CMV infection after HCT.
