New Online Learning: The Evolving Landscape of HIV Treatment

It is more important than ever for s100-prescribing GPs to stay abreast of the treatment landscape. The choice of ART regimen affects the risks of different comorbidities, so choosing the most appropriate therapy is important for maximising quality of life. This course, produced in a collaboration between ASHM and mdBriefCase, will help you stay up to date with the current guidelines and recommended regimens in the treatment of HIV, emphasising the management of comorbidities and strategies to mitigate them.

This course uses a mix of informative videos of experts, engaging case studies and multiple-choice questions for you to evaluate your progress. It is RACGP CPD&QI accredited for 2 points (category 2).
