Public Health Detailing for HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis.

08:00 EDT 18th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Public Health Detailing for HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis."

Despite the promise of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), PrEP remains underutilized, often due to clinician factors. Academic or public health detailing is a process by which university and/or government groups employ the marketing practices of pharmaceutical companies to improve clinical practice. We describe the novel application of detailing to increase PrEP prescribing and related care in New York City and New England. Detailing can play a crucial role in PrEP implementation.
