Despite significant reductions in perinatal HIV transmission in the United States, new cases of pediatric HIV occur as a result of missed opportunities in prevention. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an in-depth analysis of systems issues to identify factors that lead to missed opportunities. This workshop will offer participants an update on the revised perinatal guidelines, new testing technologies as they relate to screening for the mother and her newborn, and case presentations on actual missed opportunities in Florida. Break-out groups will focus on a root cause analysis of the issues, use of a perinatal chart review tool (developed in Florida), and consideration of various solutions including new technology in testing, correction of “medical errors” in HIV perinatal care, medical care systems changes, and other strategies to improve prevention. Work group findings will be discussed at the conclusion.

Learning Objectives:

  • This session will identify the numerous missed opportunities in failed perinatal HIV transmission prevention.
  • Participants will learn how to predict potential missed opportunities and prescribe individualized plans to correct them in "real patient care time."
  • Formulate plans to solve the issues of specific missed opportunities on a systems level in their own health care system.
