The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity as part of a nationwide CME effort for physicians in the evolving challenges of managing HIV and other viral infections.

Intended Audience

This enduring material is designed for physicians who are actively involved in the medical care of people with HIV and other viral infections.

This activity is also relevant for other practitioners, including nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and others.

CME Information

The International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The IAS–USA designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This CME activity is offered from November 30, 2021 to November 30, 2022. Participants who successfully complete the activity posttest and submit the evaluation and registration forms are eligible to receive CME credit. Physicians (MDs, DOs, and international equivalents) may receive CME credit for completing this activity. Other health care practitioners will receive a certificate of participation.

Disclosure of Financial Interests

It is the policy of the IAS–USA to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its educational activities.

All faculty members (planners, speakers, presenters, etc) participating in IAS–USA-sponsored activities are required to disclose to the program audience any financial relationships with ineligible companies (formerly known as “commercial interests”) within the past 24 months that could be perceived to influence, or give the appearance of potentially influencing, the writ ten or oral presentation. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines a financial interest as an interest in any amount and defines an ineligible company as “any entity producing, marketing, re selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be ineligible companies—unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined ineligible companies.” The information is intended to make the IAS–USA audience aware of speaker and contributor interests and commitments with ineligible companies, enabling the audience members to form their own judgments about such associations.

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 for contributors and planners/reviewers is below. Information about financial relationships with ineligible companies for contributors is also included in each article.
