ASHM Report Back
Clinical posts from members and guests of the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) from various international medical and scientific conferences on HIV, AIDS, viral hepatitis, and sexual health.
Another amazing day in Glasgow - Day 2
Was greeted by a Scottish Piper this morning on my way into the SECC. Really enjoyed the morning sessions and particularly enjoyed the 'Transition to adult care' by Pablo Rojo, PaediatricIan from Spain. His clinic tends to hold onto young patients until they are possibly more mature and are more likely to make their own appointments and continue their own care. Depending on their maturity and knowledge of their health care needs depends on them transitioning across to adult care. With over 350 posters to view after lunch, I spent the afternoon perusing and soaking up what I thought was interesting. I did met a lovely young Dr/researcher from Mumbai a few days ago and he was exhibiting his poster. He wanted to explain his fabulous work to me. Title of his poster "Association of SLCO1B1 521T>C (rs4149056) with darunavir/ritonavir (DRV/r) plasma concentrations in HIV-infected individuals enrolled in the NEAT001/ANRS143 Study". Once he had finished explaining his research, I thanked him for his patience in explaining his very in depth and scientific work to me. I still can' t get over the lecture yesterday given by Dr Andrew Hill from London, his work inspired the audience and I want to research more about his work on my return. I look forward to tomorrow's sessions in PrEP and the way forward. I suspect I will enjoy these sessions. Cheers Karinne
