Description:
Health care professionals can rely on this program for the latest updates and advances in the diagnosis and management of the HIV-infected patient

For more than three decades, advances in medical knowledge and biomedical technology have fostered the evolution of HIV clinical care, but with more than 1.1 million people receiving treatment for HIV in the United States, the HIV epidemic continues to grow more complex, and health care professionals struggle to keep current on the latest developments and regimens. Along with adherence to lifelong antiretroviral therapy, today’s HIV-infected patient may also confront limitations in accessing care, renal, cardiovascular and liver diseases, other illnesses associated with aging, and coinfections with hepatitis B and/or C.

Key topics include:
• Diagnosing and managing HIV – tools for the primary care provider
• Identifying optimal antiretroviral therapy (ART), treatment initiation, salvage therapy, and pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis and adherence to lifelong therapies
• Integrating HIV management and opioid addiction treatment
• Addressing opportunistic infections, dermatologic conditions, malignancies, and hepatitis B and C coinfections
• Examining contemporary HIV topics including aging in the HIV population, renal, cardiovascular and liver diseases; and the management of HPV-related anogenital infection
• Overcoming barriers in HIV for marginalized populations
• Utilizing practical tools to address gender and sexual health challenges, including screening and treatment of sexually transmitted infections

Why You Should Attend
Increase your skills and knowledge to deliver unparalleled care to your patients. You will leave the course with:
• The latest HIV knowledge, insight and teachings from leading authorities and clinical educators
• A greater understanding of incorporating tools and tests into your practice
• Awareness of your strengths and areas for improvement
• A network of like-minded professional colleagues
• An in-depth print and electronic syllabus packed with valuable information and real-world solutions

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
• Evaluate current data and guidelines on post-exposure and pre-exposure prophylaxis to prevent HIV infection
• Recognize the clinical manifestations of HIV infection and describe recent advances in HIV testing
• Integrate into practice recent advances in HIV care including tailoring antiretroviral therapy based on genotype, comorbidities and potential drug interactions, appropriate incorporation of newer antiretroviral agents into treatment regimens, approaches to initial treatment and salvage antiretroviral therapy, management of special populations, and appropriate management of common infections – opportunistic and otherwise
• Counsel HIV-infected patients regarding antiretroviral therapy adherence and potential, long-term complications such as the risk for development of specific malignancies, chronic liver or renal disease, and chronic metabolic issues
• Incorporate treatment approaches to address comorbidities and infectious complications
• Determine which HIV-infected patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection are candidates for HCV treatment with directly acting antivirals, design regimens and assessments of response, and describe drug-drug interactions, especially in HIV/HCV coinfected patients on antiretroviral therapy complications
• Integrate treatments for substance use disorders into HIV care settings.
