Clinical Pharmacy Training Manual for HIV Medicine

Overview: APIN, in collaboration with Northwestern University Center for Global Health, is pleased to present the Clinical Pharmacy Training Manual for HIV Medicine. Pharmacists play a key role in the provision of HIV prevention, care and treatment and as such, they must develop and maintain a thorough understanding of the use of medications for HIV and related diseases. The manual includes 17 chapters that address important topics in HIV medicine, including a detailed review of each antiretroviral drug class, as well as key issues on adherence, pharmaceutical care, management of co-infections, and special patient populations. At the end of each chapter are self-assessment questions meant to test the readers’ comprehension of the material presented within the chapter.
