Program Description

This course will be a half-day virtual update focusing on key issues for the HIV clinician. If it is safe and practical to meet in person, there will be an in-person component to the course located in San Francisco, California.

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, COVID-19, and sexually transmitted infections. 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 clinicians and researchers.

Learning Objectives

After participating in the activity, learners will be better 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 and approaches
  • Describe the potential interaction between COVID-19 and other viruses such as HIV and influenza
  • Describe current and investigational therapeutics for the treatment of acute and chronic COVID-19
  • Describe the current epidemiology, clinical presentations, and management of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in adults with HIV infection
