ARV Therapies and Therapeutic Strategies. Independent Reporting on AIDS 2018. From Conference to Clinic. Reviewing and Applying Data from AIDS 2018. From Conference to Clinic: Reviewing and Applying Data From AIDS 2018 is an interactive, case-based dinner program series designed to highlight and discuss the clinical significance and application of new findings in HIV medicine presented at AIDS 2018. Because the focus of the dinner programs will be on case studies and applying the data presented at AIDS 2018 in a clinical setting, prior to attending a dinner program participants will be asked to view the CME Internet Symposium: AIDS 2018 Expert Review, which will familiarize them with the AIDS 2018 data and serve as a comprehensive conference overview and summary. As a result of this blended learning approach, participants will gain an increased understanding of key data presented at AIDS 2018 and be better prepared to address their HIV patients' health needs and provide optimal care in a clinical setting.

Improving the Care of HIV-positive Patients in 2018: The treatment of patients with HIV infection is a complex process that includes testing, diagnosis, linkage to care, individualized antiretroviral therapy (ART), and the management of co-morbidities (especially hepatitis C co-infection) and other issues. Decisions about the clinical management of HIV patients often require that clinicians understand a wide range of clinical trial data and treatment information if they are to provide the care that is best suited for each patient. This is especially true of ART and includes critically important issues regarding when to start, which antiretrovirals (ARVs) to use and when to switch.

This two-part medical education program includes a combination of online teaching modules and Q&A sessions with nationally recognized HIV specialists. As a result of participating in this program, physicians and other health care providers will gain a greater understanding of how to provide optimal therapy for patients with HIV infection, thereby increasing the number of patients receiving individualized, optimal ARV therapy, while reducing morbidity and mortality and improving patient outcomes.

The first part of the program includes a choice of three online modules that address: 1) regimen selection for the treatment-naïve patient; 2) regimen selection for the treatment-experienced patient; and 3) prevention and management of common co-morbidities in the HIV- infected patient. Once a module is completed and CME credit has been awarded, the participant will then be offered an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session via text, email or teleconference, scheduled with one of a panel of HIV faculty for a more in-depth discussion of the module topics. 

HCV Therapy in 2018: Agreement and Controversy. Despite significant advances in the treatment of people with HCV infection, professional practice gaps remain that contribute to continued morbidity and mortality. While clinical trials provide an evidence base regarding which direct acting antivirals (DAAs) are most likely to be effective for treating various patients, many HCV clinicians have not integrated them into their clinical practice. To address this problem, we have developed a case-based CME program that explores and analyzes current HCV treatment standards of care, including when to start treatment, re-treatment, HCV/HBV co-infection, HCV and HCC complications, decompensated cirrhosis and acute HCV. Participants in this program will gain knowledge and skills that should lead to improved patient care. 

Selecting ARV Therapy in 2018: What Is the Standard of Care? This is a four-part CME video program. Despite significant advances in the treatment of people with HIV infection, professional practice gaps remain that contribute to continued morbidity and mortality. While clinical trials provide an evidence base regarding which ARV drugs and regimens are most likely to be effective for treating various patients, many HIV clinicians have not integrated them into their clinical practice. To address this problem, we have developed a case-based CME program that explores and analyzes current HIV treatment standards of care, including when to start, what to start in ARV-naive patients, and when to switch ARVs in virologically suppressed patients for the purpose of eliminating or avoiding toxicity, improving long-term patient health, or simplifying a regimen. Participants in this program will gain knowledge and skills that should lead to improved patient care.

HIV Virtual Patient. The HIV Virtual Patient program is an interactive, case-based program featuring real-world case scenarios discussed by HIV thought leaders. Participants will be asked to assess and treat a variety of HIV-positive and HIV-negative patient types with the direction and consultation of HIV thought leaders. This program provides important information that can be directly applied to clinical practice, thereby increasing the delivery of optimal care to patients with HIV infection in the United States.

HIV in the South. The Southern United States experiences the greatest burden of HIV infection, illness, and deaths of any U.S. region, and lags in providing quality HIV prevention and care to all its citizens. To address these issues, we have developed a case-based CME program that explores and analyzed the demographics, epidemiology, risk factors, and treatment needs of patients with HIV infection in this region of the US. This program including the online video discussion and clinically applicable live program series is expected to increase clinician awareness of this various issues with HIV care in the Southern US and offer solutions for addressing barriers in such areas as HIV prevention, HIV testing, linkage to care, adherence, and continuation in care.
