Card For Clinicians Caring For HIV-Infected Older Adults

CARD FOR CLINICIANS CARING FOR HIV-INFECTED OLDER ADULTS

The Quick Reference Card for Managing Older Adults with HIV was developed out of the New York State Dept. of Health AIDS Institute Office Of The Medical Director. To obtain a copy, access www.hivguidelines.org. The AIDS Institute determined HIV and Aging as a priority over ten years ago. The number of people with HIV infection who are over 50 years of age is climbing. HIV Primary Care Specialists have demonstrated success in the integration of primary care into their practices for more than a decade. The paradigm is ever evolving and now with the increasing number of older people with HIV infection along with the development of other concurrent conditions, attention to age appropriate screenings and assessments is warranted. The Quick Reference Card was developed for the busy primary care provider to use at the point of care. It is in no way inclusive of all aspects of care but at a glance will provide helpful guidance.

L. Jeannine Bookhardt-Murray, MD, AAHIVS is the Chief Medical Officer at Harlem United, Inc, and a consultant to the New York State Dept. of Health Office Of The Medical Director. She assists with the development of clinical guidelines for HIV Primary Care.
