Overview

Assessment of Needs

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians.

Weight gain is common among people with HIV (PWH) who are starting antiretroviral therapy (ART), with regimens containing integrase  strand transfer inhibitors (InSTIs) or tenofovir alafenamide (TAF), and may occur following regimen switches. Rigorous clinical trial data is needed to confirm findings from observational cohorts, in addition to studies of potential mechanisms linking antiretroviral agents and body weight changes. This webinar will discuss risk factors for different populations and provide an update on new management recommendations.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Assess the magnitude of weight gain associated with antiretroviral therapy
  • Identify predictors of weight gain on antiretroviral therapy
  • List potential mechanisms and metabolic complications of weight gain during antiretroviral therapy

Conflicts of Interest

In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing education activities, and in accordance with the policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the IAS–USA requires all persons with control of content (eg, faculty, IAS–USA Board members, and program staff) to disclose any financial relationships with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they or their spouses or partners have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved prior to the continuing education activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in an IAS–USA continuing education activity.

The ACCME defines ineligible companies as those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.

The IAS–USA will identify and resolve ahead of time any possible conflicts of interest that may influence CME activities with regard to exposition or conclusion. Information about financial relationships with ineligible companies information for the presenter and planners/reviewers are below and in the presentation. All relevant financial relationships with ineligible companies have been mitigated.
