Exam Content Results And Scoring
The content evaluated on the HIV Pharmacist Credentialing Exam is organized by Domain and Task statements. More details can be found in the HIV Pharmacist Credentialing Exam Content Outline.
Exam results are processed as a group in one scoring session, approximately 4 weeks after each exam completion deadline. Examinees are notified of their result via email sent directly from the Academy. To ensure confidentiality, exam results will not be released via telephone or fax by either the Academy or the testing vendor. Early submission of completed exam materials has no bearing on the result notification schedule. Candidates who pass the exam receive a three-year Academy credential, valid starting January 1 of the year following testing activity.
Credentialed providers receive:
- A complimentary lapel pin is available upon request
- Credentialed status listing on the Referral Link care resource directory
The Academy allows for one complimentary retake of the HIV Credentialing Exam if there is another testing period available during the same calendar year. Candidates who do not earn a passing score during the August/September testing period will be automatically re-registered, without charge, for the November/December testing period.
Candidates who only take the exam during the November/December testing period are not eligible for a complementary retake.

What People Are Saying
Your online program was the very first one I took to prepare. It was very helpful and made me realize that I would have to learn a life with HIV, not just how to treat. Great program!! Thank you!!
MichRx Consulting is a great resource for any independent pharmacy owners looking to branch out into a new niche. I hired Michelle to come out and train my sales team on all the ins and outs of marketing to the HIV community and within just a few hours, she was able to teach my staff all the basics of HIV marketing.
After her in-service training, my sales staff was ready to attack the HIV market niche. Michelle is a great speaker and pleasant to learn from. I would strongly recommend her services to my colleagues and peers
Great delivery and engaging. I could take an entire 8hr class of it. I was happy to know that I am already doing many of these things

Featureshiv Care: Continuing Medical Education And Consultation Needs Of Nurses Physicians And Pharmacists
This article explores the impact of provider characteristics on their HIV-related continuing medical education attendance, consultation needs, satisfaction with skills, and willingness to provide care. A total of 731 users of an HIV consultation were surveyed by mail . Significant differences in provider variables were found to be related to HIV experience and profession. Experienced providers reported more CE, more satisfaction with skills, lower consultation needs, more consultations sought, and more willingness to take new patients than other providers. Unwillingness was commonly explained by concerns over quality of care or staying up-to-date. Relative to physicians, nurses had more CE hours, were more dissatisfied with their skills, and had greater consultation needs. Although all providers had high consultation or CE needs in some areas, accessibility to such programs is particularly important for lowvolume providers.

Pqa Offers New Ce Course On Hiv Medication Use Quality
PQA course provides an overview of how to build the best HIV treatment regimen and assess treatment outcomes.
The Pharmacy Quality Alliance has developed a 3-hour online continuing education course on Measuring Quality to Improve HIV Medication Use. Launched September 8, the course complements CE and training programs that are focused on clinical practice.
While clinical training builds skills and knowledge to prevent and treat disease, quality improvement initiatives are essential for analyzing and improving practice performance.
PQA is a national quality organization solely focused on improving medication safety, adherence, and appropriate use, and pharmacotherapy is a cornerstone of successful HIV treatment and prevention.
The PQA course provides an overview of how to build the best HIV treatment regimen and assess treatment outcomes. There is special emphasis on HIV prevention and the role of pre-exposure prophylaxis , which is a growing area of pharmacist-provided care.
What distinguishes this course, however, is its focus on quality measurement. Quality measures are the standard for evaluating the care providers provide to patients and address care safety, effectiveness, timeliness, and fairness.
A plethora of quality measures exist for HIV care, including at least 13 medication-related measures. Those measures address:
- Treatment, which includes appropriate prescribing, adherence, and monitoring.
HIV pharmacotherapy is unsurpassed in its complexity when compared with other chronic illnesses, making pharmaceutical care in this area particularly challenging. However, caring for persons infected with HIV is becoming more common as individuals with the disease are living longer and are presenting to a diversity of practice settings. Many pharmacists find themselves uncomfortable with their level of knowledge in the area of HIV either because they did not receive any HIV training in their formal education or simply because of the rapid and on-going advancements in this therapeutic area.
