In the Clinic: HIV and Aging

In this issue:

In the US, nearly half of all people living with HIV are now aged 50 years or older. Their health care providers face new challenges in managing the effects of aging in their patients. In this eHIV Review podcast, Dr. Maile Young Karris from the University of California San Diego provides clinical insight into HIV and aging. 

Learning objectives:

  • Identifying the five "M's" of geriatrics and incorporating them into HIV care.
  • Recognize a prescription cascade and moderate its impact.
