The medical care of HIV/AIDS patients continues to become more complex. Optimum clinical care depends on understanding more sophisticated concepts of antiretroviral resistance and end organ complications. To keep pace, we invite you to join a distinguished faculty for a Comprehensive Update in HIV Management from December 2 - 4, 2010 in San Francisco, California.

This course provides the active clinician with a comprehensive review of the science and application of HIV therapy. Lectures are presented by a group of leading clinicians and researchers who are also dedicated to teaching in their area of expertise. Topics emphasized include antiretroviral initiation, regimen simplification, and antiretroviral treatment of highly experienced patients. The course devotes serious attention to end-organ complications of HIV/AIDS and its treatment with lectures on bone, renal, cardiovascular, psychiatric, as well as dermatological, and oral sequale. Both the pathogenesis and clinical management of inflammation and aging will be covered.

New topics for 2010 include a lecture and small group session on how to use Motivational Interviewing to encourage our patients to engage in healthy behaviors, an update on global AIDS, vaccine research, and an examination of the epidemic in the African-American community. We will also cover key dilemmas in men’s health, harm reduction, and bacterial infections that are common or complicated in HIV Medicine.

A spirited debate will address the treatment issues in Hepatitis C and HIV Co-infection.

Finally, a small group session on mindful approaches to clinician well-being will be offered this year. Small group sessions are designed for lunch on Thursday and in the afternoon Friday, allowing participants to select their own focus.

This symposium is presented by the Division of AIDS – Positive Health Program, San Francisco General Hospital, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.
