About the Program:
The ARV Therapies and Therapeutic Strategies program is a comprehensive, independent review of the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018). This program consists of four components: (1) CME Internet Symposium: AIDS 2018 Expert Review: a 1.5 hour Internet symposium that features an overview and discussion of key presentations and posters, selected by the expert faculty discussants; (2) European Perspective on AIDS 2018: a 1 hour panel discussion featuring Europe-based expert faculty reviewing and discussing key presentations with a focus on clinical management and treatment in the EU; (3) Rapid-Fire Review of AIDS 2018: a podcast that provides a brief, audio summary of the most essential data presented at the conference; and (4) From Conference to Clinic: Reviewing and Applying Data From AIDS 2018: case-based dinner meetings during which the key data are reviewed, discussed and applied to patient care.
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.
All online components of the program will be accessible at www.viraled.com

As of August 1, 2013, pharmaceutical companies are required by the open payments act (AKA Sunshine Act) to account for certain transfers of value provided to physicians. The federal guidance for the Sunshine Act provides exceptions for CME expenses that meet certain criteria. We believe the program to which you are invited meets these exceptions, and therefore we will not be collecting, nor reporting, any information gathered from this program. If federal guidance is further clarified in the future, we will then provide that information to the supporting pharmaceutical companies to the best of our ability.
This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Gilead Sciences Medical Affairs.
