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.
EACS Clinical Guidelines - UPDATED October 2015
The EACS Guidelines were updated and released in time for the conference.
If you have not viewed these guidelines previously, it might be worthwhile having a look via the link below.
They are quite distinct from, for example, the ASHM ARV guidelines. The EACS Guidelines almost present themselves as an exhaustive guide on how to approach all stages of HIV management, and even present flow diagrams on how to approach weight loss or discuss psychosocial issues in reasonable detail.
While they provide a good starting point, it is really important to remember that management often needs to be personalised or targeted to any given patient.
