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. Health care professionals may face challenges with keeping current on the latest developments in HIV care. While managing the demands of lifelong adherence to antiretroviral therapy, people living with HIV may also encounter comorbidities involving the renal, cardiovascular and liver systems; other illnesses associated with aging; coinfections with hepatitis B and/or C; and limitations in accessing care. The HIV Update course is a comprehensive continuing medical education program specifically designed to better the integration of all aspects of HIV care.
We invite you to advance your knowledge in HIV clinical care by attending this comprehensive CME course integrating all aspects of HIV management and treatment. Hot off-the-press topics will also be addressed, arming you with the latest information.
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
