This live course will be in person at the Cobb Galleria Centre. There will NOT be a simultaneous virtual component for this course, but the on-demand activity will be available a week following the course.
This live course will focus on recent advances in HIV medicine, including updates from CROI 2023, new antiretroviral formulations and strategies, and will feature a case-based panel discussion on antiretroviral therapy.
To help keep everyone safe, proof of vaccination and wearing a mask at all times during the course will be required, as well as any other measure(s) the IAS–USA sets forth.
Assessment of Needs
Rapid advances in HIV disease management and COVID-19 information require the ongoing attention of practitioners involved in direct patient care. This course will address the implications of new information on strategies for the clinical management of HIV and COVID-19. Information will be presented through a mix of didactic lectures, clinically relevant cases, and expert panel discussions developed and led by an expert faculty of HIV/AIDS clinicians and researchers.
After participating in the activity, learners will be able to:
- Implement the latest recommendations for initiating and changing antiretroviral therapy in particular clinical circumstances, such as comorbid conditions, coinfections, pregnancy, and issues in older patients
- Describe the most current data from recent scientific conferences, including research on new and investigational antiretroviral drugs
- Describe mRNA vaccine technology and the prospects for an HIV vaccine
- Describe our best current understanding of long-COVID
- Initiate and monitor HIV prevention intervention strategies, including the use of preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), in individuals at risk for HIV infection
- Describe the current epidemiology, clinical presentations, and management of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in adults with HIV infection
- Manage substance use disorders, including opioids, stimulants, and alcohol
Conflicts of Interest
In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing medical education (CME) activities, the International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) requires all persons with control of educational content (eg, faculty, Scientific Leadership Board, Governance Board, and program planner) to disclose any financial relationships with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved and mitigated prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in IAS–USA CME activities.
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines ineligible companies as “those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.”
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 the presenters and planners/reviewers will be available in the esyllabus and in the slides prior to the presentation of educational content.
