Help/Frequently Asked Questions

The HIV Curbside Consults features will address the components of evidence-based education. Hosted on a site designed to engage and excite learners, the HIV Curbside Consults will serve as a valuable resource to learners.

HIV Curbside Consults is designed to provide clinicians timely answers to pressing clinical practice questions encountered in the management of HIV in 2016—a time with many changes and advances in therapeutic approaches. HIV Curbside Consults will comprise 12 short, case-based video discussions that are disseminated to the target audience weekly.

Each weekly video will showcase two (2) expert faculty members engaging in dialogue about questions received by, or representing queries from, community HIV treaters. Reflecting the most relevant clinical challenges related to implementing best practices in HIV care, HIV Curbside Consults will offer a review of key clinical data in support of the evidence-based answers to case-based questions. Interpretation and expert opinion provided by the contributing faculty, as well as summaries of the key educational points will drive improved clinical practice. Key data and didactic information may be included.

This innovative CME curriculum will contain the latest evidence-based content for busy medical specialists and will be available, without charge, to any medical professional with Internet access.

HIV Curbside Consults will become a great resource for all HIV treaters (Infectious disease physicians, family physicians, primary care physicians, internal medicine physicians, nurses and pharmacists) and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with HIV.
