Understanding HIV drug resistance through case studies

Join Medical Chronicle for a free, one-hour, CPD-accredited webinar on Understanding HIV drug resistance through case studies. This webinar is sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific and will be presented by Dr Kay Mohamed and Dr Bronwyn Bosch.

This is the second webinar of the three-part webinar series on HIV drug resistance in patient management. 

Although HIV is a complex disease, it has been demonstrated that with early diagnosis, appropriate therapeutic intervention, and frequent monitoring, it can be well managed. Thermo Fisher offers HIV educational content here where you can find additional information on the value of molecular testing.  They offer several free-of-charge educational assets for your use as listed below.

  1. Free HIV Learning Guide: A Primer for Healthcare Professionals - A valuable resource that provides access to the most cutting-edge evidence-based information on HIV.

    Providing the latest evidence-supported information on HIV disease, epidemiology, testing, and clinical management while appreciating that this knowledge, like the pathogen itself, is constantly evolving. Offered in four modules using case studies, the valuable content is intended for diverse stakeholders including epidemiologists, public health and medical officials, healthcare advisors, scientists, laboratorians, and other health professionals who are managing and testing for HIV.  Our guest editors offer expert perspectives from Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, India, and Brazil.

  1. Free HIV Drug Resistance Infographic:  A Reference Tool for Healthcare Professionals – A valuable educational reference poster that simplifies the basics of HIV drug resistance.

    One element of disease management is a solid understanding of HIV drug resistance – what it is, how it develops, and when and how to test for it. This infographic is designed to serve as a reference document for healthcare providers treating persons living with HIV. Clinical laboratorians, pharmacists and other ancillary professionals may also find it of value.
