Course Summary

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) have undergone significant research and there have been recent improvements in disease outcomes. Although it remains a chronic condition without a cure, new treatment guidelines and antiretroviral drugs have provided hope for individuals infected with HIV to live longer. Continuing education for health professionals caring for men, women and children with HIV/AIDS helps to dispel myths and reduce stigma, enhance a fuller understanding of best practice trends, and improve prevention strategies to avoid transmission of the disease and complications associated with disease progression and/or treatment.
