Morton’s Downtown Houston
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and all interested health care providers involved in the treatment of patients with HIV.
Advances in research and an expansion of antiretroviral therapy (ART) options now enable HIV-infected persons to live near-normal lifespans. However, deficits in quality HIV care from treatment initiation throughout long-term retention persist across the spectrum of care. HIV-infected patients can present significant treatment challenges to health care providers with respect to the initiation of treatment, retention, resistance, coinfections, and comorbidities. The recent approval and anticipated arrival of new agents and new combinations, for both treatment-naive and treatment-experienced patients, as well as newly released HIV professional treatment guidelines, highlight the need for continuing medical education (CME). This CME activity presents best practices in the treatment of HIV-infected persons based on the new guidelines and the emergence of new agents to assist you in making informed care and treatment decisions. In addition, it will provide you with the opportunity to immediately put this new knowledge into virtual clinical practice.
