Patient Case Study
AAPA Category I CME Credit
CE for Nurses
Estimated Time to Complete:
While the CDC recommends that all patients in all health care settings be tested for HIV, screening is especially critical in pregnant women because the overwhelming majority of pediatric HIV cases result from perinatal transmission. This case study will illustrate how early testing in pregnancy can set the stage for the most effective interventions to prevent transmission to the newborn, and will provide an outline of initial treatment strategies for the pregnant patient with HIV.
Primary care physician assistants and nurse practitioners
After taking part in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Discuss the importance of opt-out HIV testing for pregnant women to prevent perinatal transmission
- Provide initial counseling and referrals for pregnant patients who test positive for HIV
