    • Overview

      This session seeks to intensively examine the newest antiretroviral agents used in the management of HIV and AIDS.  These drugs are discussed within the context of the latest treatment recommendations, including pertinent counseling points for patients.  In addition, the session seeks to broadly discuss the epidemiology and common modes of transmission for the HIV virus and to evaluate various mechanisms for infection control.    Pertinent applications specific to the state of Florida are incorporated into this discussion, including the current applicable laws as related to the testing and confidentiality of HIV/AIDS testing and the role of pregnancy in the statutes.
