Program Description

This half-day course will include an overview of the clinical relationship between long COVID and HIV, a case-based panel discussion on the evaluation and management of long COVID, and updates on the latest clinical trials and ongoing gaps in knowledge. The course will also feature a unique perspective on long COVID from a patient’s point of view.

Assessment of Needs

Rapid advances in HIV and COVID-19 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 long COVID in different clinical settings. Information will be presented through a mix of didactic lectures, clinically relevant cases, and a roundtable discussion developed and led by an expert faculty of HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 clinicians and researchers.

Topics

  • Patient Perspective: Long COVID
  • Pathogenesis of Long COVID
  • Evaluation and Management of Long COVID (case-based)
  • Long COVID and HIV
  • Long COVID Clinical Trials

Learning Objectives

After participating in the activity, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the current understanding of long COVID
  • Describe the clinical manifestations of long COVID, including physical and cognitive symptoms
  • Identify the gaps in current knowledge related to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of long COVID, including in people with HIV
  • Describe the current diagnostic criteria and assessment tools for long COVID
  • Outline the latest research in clinical trials on long COVID

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.
