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. More than 50% of HIV-infected persons are older than 50 years, and that percentage is increasing. Initially focused on survival, HIV-infected persons and their health care practitioners may not have given thought to the medical, functional, and psychosocial implications of aging. This webinar will provide some demographic background and will cover topics such as general aging principles, epidemiology of aging and HIV infection, geriatric assessment, psychosocial stressors, approaches to common comorbidities, medication management, prevention considerations, and advance directives.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the epidemiology of HIV infection in aging individuals and describe how general principles of aging relates to HIV infection
- Describe the age-related syndromes in persons aging with HIV infection, the components of geriatric assessment, and the tools for assessing different domain categories
- Identify psychosocial stressors associated with aging and services the Aging Services Network provide
- Summarize at least 1 common comorbidity among aging HIV-infected persons and identify the unique approaches to HIV prevention and management
