Target Audience

Physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and nurses treating patients with LAIs in the time of COVID-19.

Session Summary

In recent years, overwhelming evidence suggests that LAIs may improve adherence, reduce relapse and hospitalizations, lessen the risk of treatment failure, and decrease mortality. Also, much evidence suggests the use of these treatments should no longer be reserved for last line, but offered at an earlier place in the illness. Moreover, new agents have arrived on the market which can be dosed without oral overlap, paving the way to less burdensome initiation strategies. Join Drs. Les Citrome and Megan Ehret for this on-demand online activity, exploring the important role of LAIs and the critical part pharmacists have to play in ensuring continuity of care for patients treated with LAIs.
