Slide 13. HIV Research Network (HIVRN) and Medication Safety.
The HIVRN is comprised of 19 HIV providers that treated 27,737 patients (adult and pediatric) in 2010.
- The HIVRN has identified specific methods and approaches by which sites have reduced medication errors.
- For example, after receipt of the 2005 data the HIVRN alerted sites as to those patients who were on the non-preferred combination of truvada and unboosted atazanavir. Site PIs notified providers caring for these patients.
- These interventions resulted in a sizable reduction in the proportion of patients on the non-preferred regimen. (34 percent reduction between 2005 and 2007).
