Clinical cases / Singular experience

We encourage attendees to present unique clinical cases or different personal experiences related to HIV infected patients and aging. The goal of this exercise is to present singular cases of older HIV-infected patients to generate discussion and share these new experiences and knowledge that arise from daily clinical practice. In this case we are not looking for abstracts presenting research results, cohorts or clinical studies, but for cases providing new experiences that would enable to enhance the management of HIV infected aging patients.

The clinical case / singular experience must be submitted through the following link, maximum 350 words. Contents: 1) detail the clinical case / experience, 2) explain the reasons why it is considered unique, and 3) conclusion.

The Scientific Committee will evaluate the cases received; those accepted will be presented as poster (DIN A1 format (594 x 841 mm)) and the selected 3 most relevant ones will be presented presented as oral communications (5 minutes presentation + 5 minutes for questions) and will receive an award.

 

Expert group discussion-Q&A

The attendees will be able to discuss and ask questions to the experts during one hour. At the end of the session, each expert will summarize the highlights from each discussion in 10 minutes for the full audience.

In the upcoming meeting experts from the following areas will be represented:

  • Physiologist/ social worker
  • Patient aged 60 years old or more
  • Clinician/geriatrician

 

Train the trainers

Prior to the workshop the Scientific Committee will select the “trainees” among those participants from the referral institutions from the different regions and countries participating in the workshop. Side meetings will be organized with the trainees and presentations, reference materials and literature will be provided. Trainees will develop their own presentation materials based on those from the workshop and delivered the course to their peers.

In order to ensure the delivery and completion of the program a report will be submitted by the trainees to the Scientific Committee along with a feedback questionnaire filled by those trained by the “trainee” and a certificate of completion will be delivered.
