TEAM UP: Defining and Refining Optimal HIV Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Target Audience
This activity was developed for a national audience of HIV specialists, infectious disease physicians, primary care physicians, and pharmacists.

Program Overview
During the COVID-19 pandemic, people living with HIV may have unique clinical, emotional, and social needs. For many long-term survivors with HIV, COVID-19 is the second pandemic that they have lived through. In this multipart program, experts from DAP Health will review key components of HIV care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through webinars and short interviews, Drs. Christopher Foltz and Shubha Kerkar review COVID-19 testing, diagnosis, and management, with a focus on people living with HIV. C.J. Tobe provides guidance for clinicians addressing challenges with access to HIV care during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as patient education and community outreach for medical underserved communities. Finally, Dr Gover is interviewed about the mental health needs of people living with HIV during COVID-19, including those of long-term survivors and caregivers.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

Describe the current understanding of the consequences of COVID-19 on persons living with HIV (PLWH)
