Statement of Need/Program Overview
This activity will address the need for HIV providers to increase their capacity to care for older adults with HIV, including specific considerations for antiretroviral treatment in older adults, managing comorbidities common among older adults with HIV, and addressing psychosocial issues. The workshop will also address the need among HIV providers to better understand geriatric principles, and how they can be incorporated into patient assessment and care.

Educational Objectives
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
• Develop appropriate treatment regimens and management strategies for managing older patients with HIV taking into account the effects of aging and co-morbid conditions.
• Select ART regimens that balance the control of virus with the potential for long-term side effects, particularly in older patients and those on antiviral therapy over many years.
• Review the psychosocial challenges of aging with HIV
• Manage co-infections, co-morbidities and opportunistic infections, particularly those chronic conditions common to the aging population at large.
