Goal: To enable the learner to have the most recent information about antiretroviral treatment options. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the HIV Continuum of Care Cascade and the importance of diagnosis, linkage, retention and adherence.
  2. Review the HIV therapeutic classes and how they are used in combination.
  3. Discuss recent updates to the Department of Health and Human Services Treatment Guidelines for antiretroviral therapy.
  4. Analyze a clinical scenario of a patient on antiretroviral therapy.

 

 We offer a biannual webcast series entitled "The Management of HIV/AIDS in Correctional & Community Settings" which addresses clinical issues in the management of HIV-infected patients. This series is a unique, collaborative venture among Albany Medical Center, the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision and the private pharmaceutical industry. Each program addresses a different clinical aspect of HIV infection using the same format: didactic lectures, case presentations and a panel discussion.

The webcasts are intended for clinical providers including physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, nurses, dentists, dental hygienists and other interested providers.
