In the fall of 2018, a multi-disciplinary team of residents representing internal medicine, nurse practitioners, clinical pharmacy, and social work convened to address a low rate of initiation of PrEP for eligible Veterans in the Homeless Patient Aligned Care Team (HPACT) clinic at VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (VAGLAHS). Barriers identified in the HPACT clinic were the unavailability of widespread PrEP prescribing privileges, difficulty identifying eligible patients for PrEP, and the lack of a current process in place for PrEP management in the HPACT clinic. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recognizes PrEP prescribing to eligible patients as a Grade A recommendation and is considered standard care in the primary care setting.
