Target Audience

The educational design of this enduring activity addresses the needs of HIV-specialist physicians and other clinicians and stakeholders involved in the care of patients with HIV infection.

Learning Objective

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Tailor ART regimens according to patient comorbidities, risk factors, adverse events, and drug–drug interactions

Activity Description

As patients with HIV continue to live longer, there is a greater concern of comorbidities typically seen in aging patients, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD). Patients with HIV have an increased risk of CVD and HIV specialists should feel prepared to address this risk with their patients and to tailor both ART and other medications. Dr. Sharon L. Walmsley and Dr. Priscilla Hsue discuss a patient with several risk factors for CVD, including the risk of CVD in HIV, the relationship between ART and CVD, drug–drug interactions, strategies to estimate risk, and initiating treatment for common risk factors, such as hypercholesterolemia.
