PILL PUSHER: Intersections of PrEP Inconsistencies
"Pill pushing" seems to be the next wave of HIV prevention. But why are many providers "reluctant" to embrace biomedical HIV prevention? Provider stigma and personal beliefs often dictate if a patient is granted or denied access to these life saving tools. This interactive workshop is designed for healthcare providers, community members, and navigators to explore the intersections between their personal beliefs and biases versus the benefits and strengths of Biomedical HIV Prevention. "The Pill Pusher" will set the stage for a robust discussion of strategies and best practices for patient advocacy, patient navigation and managing personal beliefs by using the real-life experiences and challenges of a Biomedical HIV Prevention Coordinator's efforts with access and advocacy for PEP and PrEP at his CBO, APEB. Attend this hot topic workshop and you'll leave with a better understanding your role plays in Biomedical HIV Prevention.
