AGENDA

Scheduled CE Activities Monday, June 3, 2019
  
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
As new ART treatments are developed, clinicians must be aware so they can provide the best options for their patients living with HIV. As HIV screening has become routine throughout New York State, medical providers are diagnosing more people living with HIV. Recent scientific consensus statements and campaign of Undetectable=Untransmittable is why rapid HIV treatment is vital to not only the HIV-infected subject, but also to broader community since being undetectable will help prevent sexual transmission in the community. Even though HIV specialists still play a vital role in providing guidance for selecting an ART regimen, non-specialists such as primary care clinicians should be aware of ART guidelines. Through annual visits or routine monitoring, medical providers should be familiar with current ART trends so they may provide high quality care to their patients.
