Statement of Need

Despite the effectiveness of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), uptake remains suboptimal, with potentially less than 10% of candidates using and adhering to prophylaxis. Transgender women face particularly unique challenges and barriers that may impact their uptake and adherence to PrEP. It is imperative that clinicians reinforce the safety and efficacy of PrEP and concomitant use of gender-affirming hormones in transgender women as well as integrate risk factors associated with decreased bone mineral density (BMD) into treatment decision-making for PrEP.

In this CMEO BriefCase, we will meet Christine, a transgender woman who has been taking emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (F/TDF) for 5 years and has become concerned with the discussions on social media about PrEP and its interactions with feminizing hormone therapy. Expert faculty will discuss this case and how to apply clinical trial data to decision-making for patients who are taking PrEP.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Apply clinical trial data and other available evidence to decision-making for the management of patients taking PrEP.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Gilead Sciences, Inc.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists
