Stigma and HIV Care in LGBTQ+ Persons

Stigma. What is it, and where does it come from? How do LGBTQ+ individuals, particularly those with HIV, experience it? How does stigma affect their mental health? What effect does it have on their engagement in HIV care? What do health care providers need to change to minimize stigma in their practices? 


These are some of the questions advanced practice nurse Dallas Ducar, CEO of Transhealth, discusses in this issue of eHIV Review.

  • Managing HIV Coinfections: HBV and TB

    33:44
    Current ART regimens can successfully manage HIV infection in nearly all PLWH. But what happens when a patient with HIV is coinfected with a dangerous pathogen ART alone cannot handle? Two of the most common are hepatitis B and latent tuberculosis infection.Post-test for CME credits: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/203/test
  • ART, HRT, Pregnancy, and Menopause in Women Living With HIV

    24:45
    Pregnancy and menopause — for many women, these are two of the most significant healthcare events in their lives. For WLWH (women living with HIV) and their healthcare providers, managing these life-changing periods is often complicated by many questions.Post-test for CME credits: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/201
  • Clinical Management Considerations in Mild Asthma

    23:47
    Mild asthma. For patients showing wheezing and shortness of breath on moderate exertion, it’s one of the most common diagnoses, even when breath sounds are clear and pulmonary function testing is normal. What makes mild asthma “mild”? The key guidelines base the stage of a patient’s asthma on how difficult it is to treat. Does that mean the frequency of symptom occurrence? How often a rescue inhaler needs to be used? The frequency and severity of pulmonary exacerbations? How should mild asthma be treated? What are the risks and benefits of short-acting beta agonists versus long-acting beta agonists versus inhaled corticosteroids? Which combinations might be appropriate for which patients?Join us in this issue of ePulmonology Review, as Dr. Fawzy from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine’s Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care discusses these and other issues important to providing the best care for patients with mild asthma.Post test for CME/CE credit: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/197/test
  • PH in the Clinic: The Revised WHO Classifications

    25:30
    Pulmonary hypertension. The 2022 ESC/ERS revised guidelines have redefined it. New evidence from ongoing and completed clinical trials have led to updates in diagnostic thresholds and treatment algorithms. New agents — some approved, others advancing through the pipeline — promise improved efficacy and safety for a variety of patients. What does it all mean to practitioners in the clinic?Post test for CME/CE credit: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/195/test
  • Clinical Approaches to Marginalized Populations

    35:03
    In part 1 of this eHIV Review Special Edition (still available at eHIVreview.org), eHIV Review Program Director Justin Alves, Nurse Educator at Boston Medical Center, reviewed the recent evidence describing some of the barriers to care experienced by marginalized individuals at risk for or living with HIV. In this Part 2 issue, he again calls upon two front-line clinicians in the fight to end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. — Nicky Mehtani, MD, from UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco, and Vanessa Loukas, NP, from Boston University’s Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine —to share their clinical approaches.Post test for CME/CE credit: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/191/test
  • Addressing the Needs of Marginalized Populations - Mehtani

    04:43
    Marginalized individuals at risk for or living with HIV — the formerly incarcerated, immigrants, people with unstable housing, residents of rural communities, the rising number with substance use disorder — have long faced disparities in obtaining adequate health care. What do HCPs need to know to understand the unique needs of these underserved populations? How can they provide meaningful, helpful, and culturally sensitive care? What barriers continue to prevent their being brought into the HIV care continuum?

  • HIV Stigma: A Psychologist’s Viewpoint

    30:59
    A wealth of evidence confirms that adolescents and young adults (AYA) are indeed a priority population whose needs must be addressed for the US Ending the HIV Epidemic program to be successful. What do providers need to know about AYA to bring more of these patients into the HIV care continuum? What should they be doing? And what should they avoid doing?Join us as guest author Dr. Vincent Guilamo-Ramos from the Duke University School of Nursing answers these and other questions, in this issue of eHIV Review.Post test for CME/CE credit: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/183/testCompanion newsletter: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/182
  • Using the New Biomarkers in Clinical Practice

    25:55
    NfL — neurofilament light, from the blood, not the CSF. Is it a reliable indicator of MS activity, a predictor of relapse-related disability, and a monitor of treatment efficacy? OCT — optical coherence tomography. Fast, safe, reliable, and repeatable, it can reveal the cellular layers inside the retina. But how well does what OCT shows correlate with outcomes of importance in MS? And most important, how can these new biomarkers help clinicians care for their patients with MS now? Join us, as guest author Dr. Emily Schorr from the Department of Neurosciences at the University of California San Diego, addresses some of these questions in this issue of eMultipleSclerosis Review.Post test for CME/CE credit: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/181/testCompanion newsletter: https://elit.dkbmed.com/issues/180
