Description

Approximately 52%-59% of adults with HIV experience some degree of cognitive impairment, ranging from mild cognitive impairment to HIV-associated dementia. Such cognitive impairments can interfere with medication adherence, instrumental activities of daily living, mood, and even driving. This course provides an overview of such neurocognitive issues. There are five learning objectives. Objective 1 is to provide the psychosocial context in which cognitive problems emerge in this population. A special emphasis on ageing is provided as over 50% of adults with HIV are 50+ years and advanced ageing is expected to further contribute to such cognitive impairments. Objective 2 is to explain how progressive stages of HIV are classified using the current Frascati criteria. Objective 3 provides a description of the neurobiological mechanisms and neurology in which HIV compromises brain health and cognition. Objective 4 provides a state of the science review on strategies to prevent cognitive problems and promote cognitive health in adults with HIV. This section is especially useful in providing suggestions to nurses and clinicians of how to help those with HIV experience such cognitive impairments. Objective 5 provides a context in which one can still age successfully with HIV. From this overview, nurses and clinicians will have a fuller, well rounded knowledge of HIV-related neurocognitive issues and have a better understanding of how to treat and advise patients.

Objectives

On completion of this course the learner will be able to:
1. Analyse the Neurocognitive issues
2. Discuss the psycho-social context in which cognitive problems emerge in this population
3. Explain how progressive stages of HIV are classified using the current Frascati criteria
4. Describe the Neurobiological mechanisms and neurology in which HIV compromises brain health and cognition
5. Outline the strategies to prevent cognitive problems and promote cognitive health in adults with HIV
6. Illustrate how a patient can age successfully with HIV
