SLR has provided nPEP in its 2 EDs and 3 outpatient HIV clinics (CCC) Retrospective chart review of adult patients who received nPEP from 12/2009 to 2/2012 Demographics of patients who undertook nPEP and completed follow-up were compared Figure 1. Flow diagram of nPEP protocol Patient presents to SLRH ED or CCC within 72 hours of exposure to potentially HIV- infected fluid. Baseline HIV rapid antibody testing performed with surveillance labs. In ED, patient provided 4-day supply of nPEP with follow-up appointment to CCC outpatient HIV clinic Patient presents for follow-up. Provided prescription (insured) or supply of nPEP (grant funded) to complete 28 days of treatment 2-, 4-, and 12-week follow-up. Background/Methods

Conclusions nPEP is a chemo-prophylaxis intervention that can prevent HIV acquisition and transmission and provides additional opportunities for synergistic biological and behavioral interventions. A multi-disciplinary approach is necessary to coordinate care, follow-up, and supportive counseling leading to successful linkage to care and completion of 28-day nPEP.
