Statement of Need

When a child is exposed to HIV perinatally, it is imperative that providers be proactive about repeat testing of the mother to assess the child’s risk of HIV even into the third trimester and delivery.

This CMEO BriefCase will introduce Cynthia, who is 24 weeks pregnant and has recently found out that her partner has begun injecting drugs. This case study will focus on the importance of HIV testing throughout the patient’s pregnancy as well as eventual diagnosis and treatment of her child in order to showcase how clinicians can integrate best practices and translate data to practice when treating pediatric patients with HIV at important time points in their development.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Integrate best practices for initiating and switching patients to ART based on safety and efficacy profiles.
  • Translate emerging data from national conferences to treatment decisions in clinical practice.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Gilead Sciences, Inc.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists
