Tuesday, October 25, 2016

2:00 PM (ET), 1:00 PM (CT), 12:00 PM (MT), 11:00 AM (PT)

Overview

Assessment of Needs

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians. Over the past decade, the rate of new HIV diagnoses in the United States has declined by 19%, with an estimated 44,073 new HIV infections diagnosed in 2014. In recent years, new data have emerged about the efficacy of antiretroviral therapy to decrease the likelihood of HIV transmission for effectively treated HIV-infected persons and to decrease the risk of acquiring HIV infection for HIV-uninfected at-risk individuals. This activity will discuss the effects of antiretroviral medications on HIV transmission and acquisition, and will discuss best practices that clinicians can use when caring for patients, to decrease the spread of HIV.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Assess the appropriate indications for initiation of antiretroviral therapy with regard to its preventive benefit
  • List the reasons why HIV-infected patients may not fully engage in care or optimally benefit from treatment
  • Determine the additional benefit that preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) may provide to partners of HIV-infected individuals
