Caring for patients living with HIV (PLWH) is challenging, especially regarding pregnancy. However, recent updates to the Perinatal HIV Clinical Practice Guidelines can provide guidance and necessitate educating caregivers on the best practices for caring for PLWH who are pregnant, planning to conceive, or are postpartum. These patients face tremendous discrimination when seeking medical advice and care regarding conception and pregnancy even when they have an undetectable viral load and have zero risk of transmitting HIV. Practitioners need to know that the Guidelines offer specific advice to address the needs of PLWH related to the use of antiretroviral (ARV) therapies before, during, and after pregnancy as well as advice on topics such as breastfeeding to prevent HIV transmission.
In this CME Outfitters Snack, expert faculty will discuss ways to adapt guideline recommendations into practice for PLWH who seek to become pregnant, are pregnant, or are postpartum, including patient cases to illustrate best practices for caring for these unique patients and their particular needs.
Integrate guideline-recommended HIV management into pregnancy and perinatal care.
