AIDS Malignancies: Gaps in Knowledge and Approach to Multidisciplinary Care
Underrepresented patient populations with AIDS and malignancies in clinical trials result in limited data available for development of treatment guidelines. Treatment of AIDS malignancies is often based on non-HIV patient population studies. Advances in cancer treatments often exclude patients with HIV/AIDS (PWH), making novel treatments difficult to offer due to unknowns. Additionally, the long-term survivors are at risk for chronic diseases, therefore, there is a need to raise awareness of health risks and preventative care. The goal of this activity is to raise awareness of the gaps in knowledge in care for PWH.
Hematologists, oncologists, infectious disease specialists, providers in primary care caring for patients with HIV, ophthalmology, providers delivering supportive care and those providing psychiatric support, such as clinical social work, psychiatrists and psychologists.
- Outline AIDS defining malignancies.
- Discuss current treatment options available for most common cancers in HIV patients.
- Assess gaps in knowledge and barriers delivering care in patients with HIV and cancer.
- Review long-term outcomes (current data) for patients surviving malignancy and living with HIV.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
