ARGENTINIAN HIV CLINICAL FORUM 2020: OPTIMIZING TREATMENT
The Argentinian HIV Clinical Forum 2020: Optimizing Treatment provides challenging plenary lectures (in Spanish and English) followed by ample time for Q&A and debate in order to bridge the knowledge gap between experts and the HIV treating community in Argentina. The program includes clinical case presentations to discuss real-life challenges.
This forum meeting is scheduled as an official pre-conference to the XVII Simposio Científico Fundación Huésped 2020 which is in line with the schedule and program of the conference to easier access the virtual components as a healthcare professional.
This program will feature challenging plenary lectures followed by ample time for Q&A and debate, stimulating interaction, and the sharing of knowledge within the HIV-treating community.
The HIV Clinical Forum is a series of interactive programs that provide an independent scientific program on emerging topics in HIV involving experts where HIV clinicians and allied healthcare professionals receive updates on the latest developments related to HIV management, where they can share their clinical experience and present the results from their ongoing and completed cohorts/ research programs.
Furthermore, the HIV Clinical Forum provides an educational setting where healthcare professionals can acquire specific skills that will enhance their capabilities to interpret research results and even develop new research projects.
