28 AETC Pharmacist Trainings San Francisco Area AETC Model

29 Why train pharmacists? Integral part of HIV healthcare team whether in ambulatory, inpatient, or community practice setting Pharmacists as both patient educators and clinicians fills good niche for HIV medication management – Adverse effect management – Drug-drug interactions – Adherence counseling

30 Pharmacist HIV Trainings: SFAETC Model Since 1999, SFAETC has been conducting HIV trainings directed to community pharmacists Trainings borne out of partnership with California ADAP Statewide needs assessment done to determine HIV training needs of pharmacists staffing stores with low-, moderate-, and high-volume HIV customers

31 Pharmacist HIV Trainings: SFAETC Model Needs assessment established core competencies for pharmacist trainings – Make pharmacist trainees more aware of HIV resources – Review issues around HIV client confidentiality and cultural competency – Provide updates on the latest advances in HIV care – Heighten awareness surrounding intricacies of HIV-specific adherence counseling – Heighten awareness of integrating pharmacy services to system of care and local HIV community

32 Pharmacist HIV Trainings: SFAETC Model Designed a one-day training, “The Community Pharmacist: A Key Member of the HIV Care Team” Formats were didactic presentations and case- based workshops Workshop topics: – Drug-drug interactions – Adherence support – HIV resistance testing interpretation – Adverse effect management

33 Pharmacist HIV Trainings: SFAETC Model First course in May 2000 – ~ 12 courses – >600 pharmacists trained More recent iteration of course has focused on medication errors Beyond the one day training format – Group consultation led by SFAETC PharmD at community pharmacies – “HIV 101” trainings by SFAETC PharmD at low-volume pharmacies

34 Pharmacist HIV Trainings: Beyond the SFAETC Model

35 Pharmacy Consultation Support for California ADAP DISCLAIMER! The following slides were NOT reviewed by California SOA/ADAP

36 CA SOA-PAETC Partnership Medical-Pharmacy Consultation support for CA SOA since 1999 PAETC consultation team consists of two MDs, one PharmD, and one RN all expert in HIV Provides medical and pharmacy-related perspective/advice to various SOA sections – ADAP – EIP/TMP – CBC – CSP Also provides direct global cross-sectional support, e.g. QM, clinic chart reviews

37 Pharmacist Consultation Support for California ADAP Specific projects – ADAP Medical Advisory Committee (MAC)-- provide technical assistance to ADAP officials about MAC clinical discussions – Develop process for systematic review of agents for ADAP formulary consideration – Cost-containment consultations-- give input on potential clinical impact of potential cost containment steps

38 Pharmacist Consultation Support for California ADAP Specific projects, cont’d – T-20 access program (2003-2005) Screened all ADAP clients for T-20 eligibility Approval criteria dependent on CD4+ count and resistance profile of virus – If CD4+ 50-200, need to have 2 other active agents – If CD4+ 50, can have 300 clients screened

39 Pharmacist Consultation Support for California ADAP Ongoing projects – Provide clinical support/tools in developing/implementing ART prescribing criteria – Clinical opinions on pipeline ART agents and expected time of FDA-approval – Periodic formulary review

40 Pharmacist Consultation Support for California ADAP Ongoing projects – Clinical inquiries regarding appropriate ART use – Review and provide clinical input regarding prior authorization criteria (e.g. maraviroc PA and tropism assay requirement) – Provide clinical information regarding off-label use

41 Future Directions ADAP needs clinical “eyes” to ensure programs are on target – HIV pharmacists involvement in formulary discussions on national level – HIV expertise to inform formulary decisions and ADAP questions – Pharmacotherapy of hepatitis co-infection and primary care conditions Quality management projects – Optimizing of ADAP prescribing with goal of decreasing duplications, omissions, errors, etc. Caring for HIV in primary care settings – Educational support for new or experienced primary providers HIV trainings booklets of drugs/ interactions, etc. – HIV expert consultation perhaps key to care for HIV pts in primary care setting
