Ober, A. J., Takada, S., Zajdman, D., Todd, I., Horwich, T., Anderson, A., Wali, S., & Ladapo, J. A. (2021). Factors affecting statin uptake among people living with HIV: primary care provider perspectives. BMC family practice, 22(1), 215.
This study examined clinic leadership and provider perceptions of factors associated with statin prescribing for persons with HIV receiving care in eight community health clinics across Los Angeles, California. The study concluded that providers desire more data and standard practice guidance on prescribing statins for PLWH, including estimates of the effect of HIV on CVD, how to adjust the CVD risk threshold to account for HIV, which statins are best for people on antiretroviral therapy and on shared decision-making around prescribing statins to PLWH.
