Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has improved dramatically over the past decade. This progress has yielded more treatment choices for clinicians and patients but also adds greater complexity to the already-diverse field of HIV treatment. In this CE activity, participants will listen to expert faculty in a series of 6 podcasts. The faculty of this program will explore various aspects of HIV management, including recent guideline revisions, use of 2-drug regimens, individualizing ART regimens in patients with HIV and comorbidities, as well as the management of patients with HIV who are highly treatment-experienced. In addition, the potential use of long-acting injectable ART formulations in patients with HIV who struggle with stigma and/or adherence as well as advances in pre-exposure prophylaxis are examined.
