Coordinating care across specialties is a consistent challenge when treating older patients with HIV, who often have other medical conditions and are simultaneously experiencing social challenges that accompany aging in the United States.
Preventive care for patients with HIV often gets overlooked. Here’s my take on what we should be doing for our patients as they age to ensure optimal health and quality of life.
HealthHIV’s Inaugural State of Aging with HIV National Survey™ report highlighted multiple challenges older individuals face when accessing HIV care. Here, I share my perspective on how these barriers culminate in lower retention of aging individuals in care.
Expert-authored slides reviewing key data and guidance on caring for aging patients with HIV or at risk of acquiring HIV; topics include the results of HealthHIV’s State of Aging With HIV Inaugural Survey, stigma in the healthcare setting, PrEP for older persons at risk of HIV, and structural and policy-driven approaches to improve health equity.
