This session will discuss the historical evolution of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy from the days where there was no therapy for HIV infection to the present time where multiple options and combinations of therapy are available. Exciting descriptions of the classes of ARV and how they are commonly combined to treat patients with HIV-infection will be presented. Common side effects and drug interactions of antiretroviral therapy will also be covered. This session is for nurses and nurse practitioners new to HIV care that are finding the many names and abbreviations of the HIV medications daunting. This will be an interactive session.
