Viremia and Vulnerability: HIV, Resistance, and Options

By Catherine M. Mullahy, RN, BS, CRRN, CCM
Executive Editor of Editor-in-Chief CareManagement

In the years between 2014 and 2018, an average of 38,000 individuals were infected with HIV. The epidemic continues. Strategies to end the HIV epidemic include: diagnosing, treatment, prevention and responding. The goal of treatment is an undetectable viral load. Although treatment options have significantly improved over time, management of the person infected with HIV is essential. Since HIV is a virus, mutations are common and must be managed. The case manager plays a significant role in patient management.

This supplement will provide information about HIV viremia and vulnerability: signs and symptoms, treatment options, and case management strategies so the patient can achieve the goal of being undetectable.
