This program is specially tailored towards the management of complex HIV patients in the United States. We offer a similar program focusing on the management of these patients in Europe. For information, click here.

The emergence of SARS-CoV2 has provoked unprecedented public healthcare measures globally, confronting not only ID doctors but everyone working in public health. These healthcare providers are faced with uncertainties on how to efficiently and effectively detect, treat, and monitor infected patients. With data and guidelines still evolving, there is a continuous stream of new information on the virus and the disease that it causes. Healthcare providers fighting the pandemic on multiple frontlines are in urgent need of a medical education resource that will expertly review and distil data into a concise and clear message to help them make informed treatment decisions for their patients.

We will organize a series of online interactive meetings on COVID-19. The duration of the online (live) events will be
90 minutes.
The next livestream is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, 14 July 2020 at 20:00 CEST

Join us for our interactive livestream and get the most up-to-date information from international experts.

Healthcare providers involved in the management of SARS-CoV2 infected patients

Despite improved antiretroviral regimens, virological failure and the emergence of drug resistance is still a problem worldwide. This includes both patients recently infected and those veterans of older regimens. Overall, viral suppression among people living with HIV in the USA is 55% and adherence is often sub-optimal. Ultimately, this leads to an increasing number of HIV patients with limited treatment options. These complex HIV patients require greater knowledge and understanding to manage in terms of adherence, resistance, aging, comorbidities, and polypharmacy.


This Webinar has been designed for US HIV physicians who would like to improve their knowledge on identifying and managing patients with limited treatment options, as well as new antiretroviral drugs for optimizing treatment of these patients.

This activity is intended for US HIV healthcare professionals as some patients in their clinic will have limited treatment options and require management as complex patients.


  • US HIV physicians experienced in treating complex HIV patients who need to be informed and updated on new treatment options;

  • US HIV physicians less experienced in treating complex HIV patients who need more comprehensive education on identifying and managing complex patients with an emphasis on new drugs;

  • US Clinical pharmacologists involved in the concomitant medication management and dose adjusting for co-morbidities of the complex HIV patient;

  • Other US health care professionals (e.g. nurse practitioners) involved in the medical care of complex patients.


At the completion of the symposium, participants will have:

  • Improved knowledge of the definition of complex patients and the challenges of their care;

  • Acquired tools and understanding on how best to Identify the complex HIV patient in their clinical practice;

  • Greater understanding of the new treatment options available for these patients;

  • Learned how best to integrate these new drugs into optimal combination regimens;

  • Improved skills in managing drug-drug interactions and toxicities in these complex patients.
