The HIV and Aging Consensus Project: Recommended Treatment Strategies for Clinicians Managing Older Patients with HIVPosted: August 14th, 2012 By: Michelle Kipper
The American Academy of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM), the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) and the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA) has released the first clinical treatment strategies for managing older HIV patients: The HIV and Aging Consensus Project: Recommended Treatment Strategies for Clinicians Managing Older Patients with HIV.
The Expert Panel members and other participants in the HIV & Aging Consensus Project also invite you to join the interactive discussion forum to become actively involved in advancing the knowledge and communication in this area of medical uncertainty.
The report is part of the organizations’ HIV and Aging Consensus Project, developed to assess how the presence of both HIV and common age-associated diseases, alter the optimal treatment of HIV as well as other co-morbidities. The purpose of the report, developed by a panel of experts with experience both in the fields of HIV and Geriatrics, is to provide best practice guidance for HIV practitioners and other health care providers who treat, diagnose and refer older patients with HIV disease.
