The HIV Patient Management Simulator II: Individualizing Therapy to Meet Your Patients’ Needs

Highly effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) has transformed HIV from a rapidly deteriorating condition to a complex, chronic condition, with individuals now expecting to live a normal lifespan. With longer survival, patients will be exposed to antiretroviral agents for decades. Therefore, maximizing the safety and tolerability of therapies, as well as preventing resistance, is a high priority. Significant progress has been made toward simplified, single-tablet regimens, optimizing the long-term safety and tolerability of therapy. Despite these advances, clinicians face challenges when selecting and maintaining therapy. In this interactive activity, HIV Patient Management Simulator II, expert faculty will use a case-based approach to discuss various aspects of HIV management, including optimal starting regimens for treatment-naïve patients, as well as the role of switching therapy in treatment-experienced patients. They also will integrate updated guideline recommendations and evidence from recent clinical trials to identify best practices in the management of HIV.
