Overview:

This course provides the active, intermediate to advanced 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. In the opening plenary, Grant Nash Colfax, MD, Director, Office of National AIDS Policy will be joining us from the White House to discuss “Continued Implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy”, while Diane Havlir, MD and Steven Deeks, MD will anchor the session with an update on global AIDS and our closeness to a cure. Other topics include antiretroviral initiation and antiretroviral treatment of highly experienced patients as well as an update on the appropriate use of PrEP.

Although the course is designed for the intermediate to advanced clinician, this year we will continue the learning track for ambitious new clinicians which focuses on the basics of antiretroviral therapy administration, HIV pharmacology, and opportunistic infections in four small group sessions. In order to match the exciting new options for patients co-infected with HIV and HCV, the hepatitis session has been vastly expanded. The session will address the myriad questions that arise in the care of chronically co-infected patients including the safe administration of the new therapies that have emerged. A small group session will share how our clinic helps support our patients to successfully engage in treatment. Finally, the diagnosis and treatment of acute Hepatitis C will be covered in the expanded session.

The course will continue to devote serious attention to endorgan complications of HIV/AIDS and its treatment with lectures on bone, renal, cardiovascular as well as dermatological, and pulmonary sequalae. The impact of disparities in care will be discussed throughout the conference and in small groups. HIV in women and reproductive issues for HIV-infected women and men will be explored thoroughly. A small group session on Motivational Interviewing will be offered to help clinicians and patients relate as successfully as possible. This symposium is presented by the Division of HIV/AIDS, San Francisco General Hospital, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.
