Optimising the Care of People Living with HIV

An update on management of comorbidities to improve patient health

As the population ages and the life expectancy of people living with HIV (PLWHIV) continues to rise, a growing proportion of Australians living with HIV are now aged over 50. It is therefore essential that healthcare providers remain confident in managing common conditions these individuals may experience.

The Optimising Care series is a multi-day webinar series to update the HIV healthcare workforce on current diagnostic and management principles of common medical conditions. It aims to maximise the health outcomes and quality of life of all Australians living with HIV.

Please join us to hear specialists from both Australia and overseas provide updates in their areas of expertise. During this exclusively digital event, speakers will be available for interactive discussion.

REGISTRATION OPEN

The committee are pleased to invite you to register for the complimentary multi-day webinar series.
