This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Gilead Sciences, Inc.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for infectious disease and HIV specialists engaged in the care of patients with HIV.

Program Description

As the population with HIV continues to age, clinicians must understand and educate patients about HIV associated neurocognitive dysfunction (HAND). The typical appearance of HAND has changed since the advent of combination ART and clinicians must be familiar with its current presentation and management. Dr. Richard Elion and Dr. Glenn Treisman discuss a patient with a long history of HIV and new memory issues and review characteristics of HAND, cortical and subcortical dementia, and caregiver burden.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Employ strategies to manage commonly occurring comorbidities alongside regular HIV management
