TARGET AUDIENCE
This activity is intended for HIV clinicians and caregivers, including physicians, nurse practitioners, and physicians' assistants.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
The presentation will focus on the epidemiology and risk factors impacting HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) and other dementias in ART-treated individuals with HIV over age 50.  It will also focus on current HIV clinical guidelines related to cognitive disorders, areas of active research to identify blood, cerebrospinal fluid and imaging biomarkers and define critical gaps in our understanding and treatment of cognitive disorders among an aging HIV population.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Integrate screening tools into practice to identify the spectrum of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders
2. Describe the interplay of psychiatric diagnoses including depression and substance use disorder in diagnosis of neurocognitive disease
3. Optimize antiretroviral therapy in people living with both HIV and neurocognitive disorders
