Activity Description

Clinical prevention of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the cornerstone of controlling the global HIV pandemic that has now killed more than 40.4 million people globally, including 1.5 million children. While a cure remains out of reach, HIV infection is now seen as a chronic illness due to the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy. Combined with significant advancements in prevention, the goal of halting the global HIV pandemic is now feasible. 

This activity comprehensively reviews HIV transmission, pathophysiology, clinical presentations, evaluation, up-to-date treatment, reporting, and program implementation considerations for specific population groups. Clinicians can expect to increase their knowledge, skills, and competence in HIV care, improving patient outcomes, reducing transmissions, and contributing to global efforts against the disease.  The role of the interprofessional team is highlighted throughout the course, emphasizing collaboration among clinical, public health, and other interdisciplinary team members. This approach acknowledges the complexity of clinical HIV management, considering socio-economic factors, the need for patient-centered care and continuous quality improvement, and the importance of social and regulatory environments to achieve optimal patient and population outcomes. By providing up-to-date information on HIV management and fostering collaboration among healthcare professionals, this activity's goal is to empower clinicians to navigate the evolving challenges posed by HIV, ultimately contributing to better patient care.


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, dentists, and social workers.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Determine the stage of HIV infection and related comorbidities to ensure accurate and timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment planning for individual patients.

  • Implement current guidelines and evidence-based practices in the treatment of HIV to optimize patient outcomes, including the initiation and management of antiretroviral therapy, prophylaxis for opportunistic infections, and prevention and management of adverse effects.

  • Interpret HIV-related information effectively to patients, ensuring a clear understanding of the diagnosis, treatment options, and the importance of adherence while demonstrating cultural sensitivity and maintaining confidentiality.

  • Collaborate with interprofessional team members, including nurses, pharmacists, social workers, nutritionists, public health professionals, community health workers, peer support workers, researchers, and others, to ensure continuity of care and improve individual and population outcomes for human immunodeficiency virus prevention and treatment.
