Assessment of Needs
Opioid use disorder is a growing crisis among people in the US, and people with HIV (PWH) are particularly affected. This talk will summarize the current knowledge in the field (eg, epidemiology, neurobiology) and will present a real-world, stepwise approach to opioid use disorder among PWH or hepatitis that can be implemented in any clinical setting. This talk will include both nonpharmacological interventions (eg, brief motivational interventions), as well as pharmacological interventions (eg, buprenorphine).
Upon completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
- Describe the basic methods of screening for and addressing opioid use disorder in people with HIV
- Explain how to initiate treatment for opioid use disorders
- Implement the basic principles of caring for HIV and HCV in people with opioid use disorder
Note: The IAS–USA acknowledges the importance of delivering the same high-quality education and resources to our audiences despite the challenging times we are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the implementation of a nominal fee to process the claim of CME and CE credits for webinars has been postponed.

Conflicts of Interest
In the interest of maintaining the independence of its CME activities, and in accordance with the policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the IAS–USA requires all persons with control of content (eg, faculty, IAS–USA Board members, and program staff) to disclose any financial relationships that they or their spouses or partners have had with commercial companies within the past 12 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in an IAS–USA CME activity.
The ACCME defines a commercial interest as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests – unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.”
