    • Overview

      The Human Immunodeficiency Virus was first identified in 1984, and throughout Professor Pete's 40-year-career, changes in therapy happen almost every year. From the 4-H Club, Drug Holidays and the CD4 count thresholds for treatment, HIV therapy is always changing. This community pharmacist will travel through the 7 classes of drugs with clinically applicable information that you can use to manage your HIV patients. This webinar is a concise overview of the mechanisms of action, side effects and, of course, the benefits adherence for our patients. Patients in the 1990's were taking handfuls of pills, while now there are now 11 different regimens that are simply one tablet daily.

       

      This course meets the FL requirement of 1.0 board-approved contact hour on the topic of HIV/AIDS.
