Approximately 36.7 million people across the planet are living with HIV and AIDS. To combat this overwhelming, global problem, clinicians have been working tirelessly to develop new treatment strategies. HIV/AIDS clinical care has improved dramatically over the decades. New medications and overall patient care methods have been established to decrease patient morbidity and mortality rates. This dramatic shift in HIV/AIDS treatment places new demands on health care professionals. This CEU provides nurses with a comprehensive review of the current HIV/AIDS treatment guidelines, while providing insight on how to improve the overall quality-of-life of those living with HIV/AIDS.
