HIV/AIDS: Therapy & Adherence is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that reviews treatment and adherence issues in populations at high risk for HIV infection.
People who live with HIV can live almost normal lifespans and have little risk of transmitting the disease if they use antiretroviral therapy appropriately under medical care. However, only 55% of HIV-infected people follow their antiretroviral regimen well enough to achieve viral suppression. This course will discuss adherence issues in populations at high risk for HIV infection, as well as strategies for healthcare professionals to encourage people with HIV to seek and maintain medical treatment.
