Individuals who re-present for NPEP

People who present for repeat NPEP should be supported, with each presentation assessed on its merits in a non-judgemental manner. It may be necessary to consider extension to an existing PEP course and this should be by a full 28 days from the last HIV exposure risk.24

Repeat presentation(s) and extension of PEP courses warrant careful assessment of the context of risk behaviour and should prompt consideration for PrEP, referral to mental health, risk-reduction counselling and/or AOD services (see the National HIV Testing Policy at http:// testingportal.ashm.org.au/hiv). Safer sex information should be an integral part of the consultation.
