Dr. Noe B. Mateo, Infectious Disease Medicine at Regions Hospital will talk to us about HIV and non-occupational post-exposure prophylaxis (nPEP) for sexual assault patients.
Kristi Jarvis RN, SANE A will discuss the data she has collected from the Regions SANE program on how many patients have been placed on nPEP, the risk factors associated with these patients, and whether they followed up after their initial few days of treatment. She will talk about barriers for patient follow-up.
There will be time for discussion, so bring your questions and experiences to share with the group.
