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.

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
  • Describe the clinical relationship between HIV and COVID-19, including clinical outcomes, vaccine responses, and long COVID
  • Describe the implications of recent advances of mRNA vaccines for developing an HIV vaccine
