Support Statement

This educational activity is supported by an independent educational grant from ViiV Healthcare. ViiV Healthcare was not involved in the development of content or selection of faculty for this educational activity.

Activity Description

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has improved dramatically over the past decade. This progress has yielded more treatment choices for clinicians and patients but also adds greater complexity to the already-diverse field of HIV treatment. In this CE activity, participants will listen to expert faculty in a series of six podcasts. The faculty of this program will explore various aspects of HIV management, including recent guideline revisions, use of 2-drug regimens, individualizing ART regimens in patients with HIV and comorbidities, as well as the management of patients with HIV who are highly treatment-experienced. In addition, the potential use of long-acting injectable ART formulations in patients with HIV who struggle with stigma and/or adherence as well as advances in pre-exposure prophylaxis are examined.

Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is infectious disease specialists, internists, pharmacists, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with HIV.

Learning Objective(s)

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Interpret recent guideline revisions regarding the use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in different patient populations.
  • Examine current and prospective use of 2-drug regimens in the treatment of HIV.
  • Incorporate individualized ART regimens to improve outcomes in patients with HIV and comorbidities.
  • Utilize ART regimens that improve outcomes in highly treatment-experienced patients with HIV.
  • Examine the potential use of long-acting injectable ART formulations in patients with HIV who struggle with stigma and/or adherence to prescribed regimens.
  • Evaluate practice-based advances that may improve the consistent use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
