Program Overview:

The ARV Therapies and Therapeutic Strategies program is a comprehensive, independent review of the 9th IAS Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2017). This program consists of five components: (1) IAS 2017 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 IAS 2017**: a 1.5 hour Case-based Internet symposium featuring Europe based expert faculty reviewing and discussing key presentations with a focus on clinical management and treatment in the EU; (3) Comprehensive Expert Review and Discussion of Key Presentations: an on-line, in-depth review of 8 of the key poster/presentations reviewed in the Internet symposium (4) Rapid-Fire Review of IAS 2017: a podcast that provides a brief, audio summary of the most essential data presented at the conference; and (5) From Conference to Clinic: Reviewing and Applying Data From IAS 2017: case-based dinner meetings during which the key data are reviewed, discussed and applied to patient care.

The Rapid-Fire Review of IAS 2017 features our national faculty panel briefly reviewing the most essential information and data from IAS 2017. This activity will enable participating health care providers caring for HIV-infected patients to become aware of and understand the data presented at this important conference and appropriately utilize those data to improve patient care.
