Perspectives on HIV and Depression in Corrections * Free Webinar - Sponsored by Gilead Sciences
Glenn Treisman MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine, John Hopkins University.
HIV affects approximately 1.3% of inmates in correctional facilities, which is more than 4x the prevalence found in the general United States populations. Additionally, depression is one of the most common comorbidities affecting adults living with HIV, with prevalence estimates ranging from 20% to 40%. In addition to being a serious clinical concern, depression complicates the management of HIV: it has been linked to low adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART), accelerated clinical progression of HIV, and higher mortality rates.
- Identify the risks, symptoms and treatments for depression in patients being treated for HIV
- Outline a treatment overview for patients receiving therapy for HIV
- Describe interactions of personality and substance use disorders with treatment for HIV
