This activity is intended for HIV specialists engaged in the care of patients with HIV.
Mental health comorbidities, particularly depression, are common in HIV. Clinicians who treat patients with HIV often lack experience in pharmacologic treatment of depression or other mental health disorders. Dr. Richard Elion and Dr. Glenn Treisman discuss a patient with worsening depression and chronic pain in terms of screening for her depression, the relationship between depression and chronic pain, and both nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic options to treat her depression.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Tailor antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimens according to patient comorbidities, risk factors, adverse events, and drug-drug interactions
