Registration is now open for HIV Care 2014. The purpose of this event, the largest of its kind in North Carolina, is to give health care providers an update on the care and treatment of HIV-infected patients who are now living longer lives. In the United States, the Southeast is bearing the brunt of the epidemic.
Topics will address newly approved treatment regimens, the management of HIV/Hepatitis C co-infected patients, bone health, patients with personality disorders and medication adherence. Additional sessions will address issues related to disclosure, cultural competency, and bioethics.
This year, additional training curricula have been added for dentists and pharmacists. A second, half-day of training offers topics focusing on current trends and treatment strategies, oral health of the HIV-infected patient, and post-exposure prophylaxis, among others.
This event is co-sponsored by the UNC School of Medicine, the UNC Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases, the UNC Center for AIDS Research, and the UNC-based North Carolina AIDS Training and Education Center.
