Assessment of Needs
Rapid advances in HIV disease management require the ongoing attention of practitioners involved in HIV medicine. This course will address the implications of new information on strategies for clinical management. Information will be presented through a series of didactics developed by an expert faculty of HIV/AIDS clinicians and researchers as well as through an expert panel discussion.
After participating in the activity, learners will be better able to:
- Initiate and monitor HIV prevention intervention strategies, including the use of preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), in individuals at risk for HIV infection
- Describe the current best understanding of the interaction of HIV and COVID-19
- Describe the current best understanding of preventing serious COVID-19 disease
- Describe the challenges and opportunities for remote care and testing of HIV, STIs, and COVID-19
- Apply newly available data to provide specific immunization guidance based on an individual’s immunologic status and assessed risk
