PrEP Prescribers

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a once-daily pill used by HIV-negative people as a HIV prevention method. It is now listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme as an s85 medication. This allows any medical practitioner or endorsed nurse practitioner to prescribe PrEP to eligible clients.

PrEP may be a prevention option for HIV-negative:

  • sexually active gay and bisexual men
  • trans and gender diverse people
  • heterosexual people with a HIV-positive partner who does not have an undetectable viral load
  • people who inject drugs. 

The Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Heath Medicine (ASHM), was commissioned by the Western Australian Department of Health (WA DoH) to provide training to support General Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners and other health professionals in prescribing and managing PrEP. 

Recording from the training session can be viewed here PrEP Update for GPs and Practice Nurses (external site) (Duration: 3 hours)

Clinicians interested in prescribing PrEP can access PrEP training on ASHM Online Learning Module -  'PrEP in practice: Guidance for GPs' (external site) (Duration: 40 to 60 minutes).
