Provider Statement

This continuing medical education activity is provided by Vindico Medical Education

Support Statement

This activity is supported by an educational grant from Merck & Co., Inc.

Activity Description

Antiretroviral therapy 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. Clinicians must keep apprised of new data regarding treatment strategies, including selection of appropriate individualized therapy and effective management of treatment side effects. In this Wheel of Knowledge interactive activity, your knowledge will be tested on the latest clinical developments and management strategies for patients with HIV, as expert faculty members provide guidance on how to incorporate new treatment strategies into clinical practice. Your hosts will also discuss various aspects of HIV management, including selecting antiretroviral treatment for patients presenting with HIV with comorbidities and/or metabolic complications, treatment of special populations with HIV, as well as individualizing therapy due to adverse effects and drug–drug interactions.

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 Objectives

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

  • Recognize special populations with HIV that are at risk for suboptimal treatment outcomes.
  • Utilize antiretroviral treatment regimens that reduce adverse effects and drug-drug interactions in special populations with HIV.
  • Incorporate the latest evidence into practice when selecting antiretroviral treatment for patients presenting with HIV, comorbidities, and/or metabolic complications.
