Age-Related Considerations in ART Decision-Making – Free CE Available!

Jun 11, 2024 | PACHC News

PACHC is hosting a free webinar on HIV and aging on June 28 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Advances in antiretroviral therapy (ART) have made HIV a largely chronic condition; more than one-third of people living with HIV in the U.S. are aged 55 years or older. As people with HIV encounter health changes associated with aging, opportunities exist to optimize HIV care by reducing ART-related toxicities and avoiding drug-drug interactions to improve adherence and overall health. In this webinar, renowned experts in the care of older people with HIV will review the evidence and share insights to support your team in applying guideline recommendations and clinical trial evidence to the aging population, navigating comorbid conditions and polypharmacy, and supporting comprehensive care to enhance patient quality of life. Registration is availableOne hour of continuing education is available for multiple professional disciplines. There will also be an overview on a new QI initiative on HIV treatment adherence supported by PRIME and Synchronyx. Anyone interested in learning more about the opportunity can opt in for further details.  The intended audience for this webinar includes HIV prevention and treatment team members–including physicians, NPs/PAs, pharmacists, nurses, and case managers–in infectious disease and primary care settings.
