HIV and Substance Use – Intertwined Epidemics
Overview



Presenter(s): Michael Polignano, MD, Clinical Instructor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Stanford University Medicine

Target Audience
This webinar is designed for physicians, physician assistants, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, and interprofessional teams. The webinar is accredited for physicians. All other non-physician attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion only.

Credit Designations Available: a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)

Webinar Description: The epidemics of HIV disease and substance use are mutually-reinforcing, and both involve significant morbidity. People with HIV and SUDs have worse health-related outcomes than those with HIV alone. The webinar will review the epidemiology of HIV and substance use, and address the structural and social factors that affect individual risk, particularly within marginalized communities. We will also discuss substance-HIV interactions at the physiologic level, such as neuroinflammatory changes that may worsen HIV- and addiction-related related cognitive deficits and influence the development of chronic pain syndromes. We will discuss recommended approaches to screening and treatment of HIV and SUDs, including the provision of integrated care, MAT, and evidence-based behavioral interventions.

Educational Objectives:

  • Outline some of the structural factors that perpetuate the intersecting epidemics of HIV and substance use.
  • Describe some of the pathophysiologic interactions between HIV and opioids in the central nervous system.
  • Identify treatment approaches and structural interventions that might reduce health disparities among people with co-occurring HIV and substance use disorders.
