OBJECTIVE

The challenge we face as health care professionals is keeping current on the latest developments in HIV clinical care in particularly, issues regarding co-infection with hepatitis B and C.

The HIV Update course is a comprehensive Continuing Medical Education program specifically designed to foster the integration of all aspects of HIV care. The face of the HIV epidemic has become more multifaceted, such that the care of today's HIV-infected patient may involve management of non-AIDS-defining malignancies, reproductive issues, renal disease and liver disease as well as ensuring adherence to life-long antiretroviral therapy.

Our outstanding faculty, recognized as leaders in clinical practice and medical education, will challenge, refresh and enrich your knowledge in all fields of HIV management.

Teaching will primarily be through state-of-the-art lectures, question and answer sessions and case-based workshops involving the audience. This will be a critical, well-informed, clinically relevant course.

In this course you will:

  • Integrate the current standards of care in monitoring and treating patients with HIV infection from the asymptomatic stage through the various clinical manifestations.
  • Integrate into practice the evolving advances in HIV care, including tailoring antiretroviral therapy to genotype and phenotype, appropriate incorporation of newer antiretroviral agents, approach to initial treatment and salvage antiretroviral therapy, management of challenging populations, gender and reproductive issues, and appropriate management of common infections, opportunistic and otherwise.
  • Apply knowledge acquired via participation in a state-of-the-art forum on hepatitis and HIV co-infection including the natural history of chronic liver disease in this setting, appropriate clinical monitoring and testing, and therapeutic alternatives.
  • Educate their HIV-infected patients regarding antiretroviral therapy adherence and potential long-term complications such as the risk for development of specific malignancies, chronic liver disease, and chronic metabolic issues.
  • Apply the most current knowledge on how to help their HIV-infected patients live longer, healthier lives.
  • Analyze the wide range of manifestations in HIV disease; the findings with which patients most typically present to their primary care provider in the outpatient setting will be stressed.
  • Have ample opportunity to ask questions and to interact with the experienced faculty of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School and invited guest faculty.

Key topics include:

    • State of the Art management of HIV-infected patients in the ambulatory and hospitalized settings
    • The science of HIV replication and its clinical application
    • Comprehensive review of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the setting of treatment initiation, salvage therapy, and post-exposure prophylaxis
    • Diagnosis and management of primary HIV infection;
    • Detailed discussions of HIV complications including opportunistic infections, malignancies, hepatitis B and C co-infection
    • Contemporary topics in HIV including renal disease, HIV in children and adolescents and the management of HPV-related anogenital infection
    • Women's health issues in HIV including management pre and post partum
    • Discussions of challenging cases with an expert panel

You will take home:

  • An understanding of clinically important advances
  • An awareness of areas of strength and weakness by participating in interactive computer-based sessions
  • Recommendations for optimal management
  • A complete syllabus that will allow you to review material at home

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
