PrEP in Practice: Clinician Perspectives on Prescribing PrEP



Anthony will examine clinician perspectives on prescribing HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in Australia, with a focus on the two distinctive contexts of New South Wales (NSW) and Western Australia (WA). This study will use a range of qualitative methods, including interviews, online story completion, and observational fieldwork. These study methods will allow for multiple lines of inquiry into different aspects of clinical prescribing, including an exploration of social norms in prescribing encounters, along with accounts from clinicians on the intricacies of prescribing PrEP.
