Don’t sweat the details. If individuals are asking for PrEP, the guidelines say that you should offer them the drug. Even if you try your best to be the most open-minded, caring, approachable clinician, some people just don’t want to talk about some things. So, if they have the courage to come to you and say, “I want PrEP,” get that prescription pad out.
