The aging HIV population requires special consideration. In addition to the “normal” stresses of aging, such as social isolation, older people living with HIV face the dual threat of ageism and HIV stigma. Clinicians need to understand this population in order to better treat them. Together we can STOP (Screen, Treat, Overcome, Prevent) HIV. If we are not able to hold the meeting in-person, the meeting will be live streamed. Topics covered: • Should you screen your senior patients for HIV? • What is pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and who needs it? • Special circumstances when treating older adults with HIV including stigma, comorbid conditions, and pharmacotherapy. • Pros and cons of switching virally suppressed patients to regimens with lower side effect profiles and simpler dosing. Educational Objectives: After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to: • Identify patients who should be screened for HIV at appropriate intervals. • Assess eligibility for PrEP among patients seen in your practice. • Assess factors associated with the aging population, such as social stigma and polypharmacy, that may complicate HIV treatment or warrant special considerations. • Evaluate data concerning safety and efficacy of switching virally suppressed patients to medications with lower risk of side effects or drug interactions or those with simpler dosing/administration requirements.
