This course will ensure that clinicians understand the challenges of treating older adults with HIV. Antiretroviral therapy has enabled people to live long lives with HIV. As a result, nearly half of people living with HIV in the United States are over 50 years of age.

These age-related syndromes which are common in elderly patients and well understood by geriatricians, but may be unrecognizable to HIV providers. Therefore, it is critical that all providers be aware of how HIV can lead to premature aging and incorporate geriatric assessments and care into their practice for treating people living with HIV.
