Australian models of care for HIV Negative patients receiving antiretrovirals as Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) – survey of clinicians

By | Governance | No Comments

The efficacy of HIV antiretroviral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in preventing HIV infections is well documented. In Australia, prescribing of daily PrEP is now guided by the ASHM national PrEP guidelines. Australia is among a handful of countries where PrEP implementation is in full swing.

This survey is focused on the current set-up of PrEP delivery in Australia in health service, pharmacy and community settings. We would also like to learn about the providers’ awareness about and willingness to prescribe PrEP and views as to how PrEP services can be best delivered.

The survey is very brief and will only take 15-25 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary. You can stop at any time, and you can also return to the survey to complete it, if you wish, by using the “Save and return” button at the bottom of each page and following the instructions.

Please complete the survey. Your participation will be highly valued.
