PrEP Optimization Intervention (PrEP-OI) is an NIH-funded study that aims to educate healthcare providers on PrEP and assist providers in the appropriate targeting of patients at increased risk for HIV acquisition, initiating PrEP when appropriate, and providing guidance on the ongoing monitoring and adherence counseling of patients on PrEP. The intervention includes a web-based panel management tool (called PrEP-Rx) and PrEP coordination (by a PrEP Coordinator). The PrEP-OI study will take place among participating primary care clinics across the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
The PrEP Coordinator will play a critical role in the study, working closely with clinical care teams in order to assist patients in obtaining timely, essential, and appropriate PrEP-related medical and social services to optimize health and prevent HIV acquisition. The PrEP Coordinator will consult with patients to answer questions about PrEP, administer risk assessment surveys, assist with medical insurance coverage, provide adherence counseling, order and monitor lab tests, conduct follow-up visits/phone calls, re-engage patients lost to follow-up via phone/text/email/social media, evaluate adverse effects, and liaison with clinical service providers to address specific health concerns. Other contributions will include assisting with the development, modification, and implementation of PrEP clinic protocols, reviewing patient charts, and entering/tracking patient data via the web-based panel management tool. The PrEP Coordinator will rotate among the participating clinics located within San Francisco.
