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. Clinicians must keep apprised of new data on treatment strategies, selection of appropriate individualized therapy, and effective management of treatment side effects. In this interactive, case-based program, expert faculty will provide guidance on how to incorporate new treatment strategies into clinical practice and will discuss various aspects of HIV management, including selecting an initial antiretroviral regimen, switching ART in patients with HIV and multiple comorbidities, as well as addressing adherence and stigma. This program will include the unique, audience-engaging, educational gaming platform, Wheel of HIV Knowledge.
