CE Update: An HIV Update for Pharmacy Technicians

by PTCB Staff | Oct 10, 2013

A $4.95 fee is charged for this CE.

It is widely accepted in the medical community that individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, can enjoy a normal life expectancy. Improvements in screening, prevention and treatment have identified ways to support individuals with HIV on many levels. Like other such chronic conditions as diabetes or heart failure, if patients adhere to medications, stay engaged in care and reduce external risk factors, disease outcomes can be maximized.

In order to help improve outcomes, pharmacy technicians need to have an understanding of the basics of the HIV disease process, known as pathology, screening techniques, transmission, treatment, and legal and ethical issues surrounding patients infected with HIV. 

This CE is worth 4 CE hours and will be available until September 25, 2015.
