Dear Colleague,

How much do you know about HIV and AIDS? See if you can answer the following questions:

  1. Is amprenavir a protease inhibitor or a non-nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor?
  2. When should prophylaxis for Pneumocystis pneumonia be started?
  3. What cognitive changes may be seen in older adults with HIV?
  4. What are the four ways that HIV can be transmitted?
  5. Why is the administration of antiretroviral medications challenging for critical care nurses?

Our next issue will focus on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as November is National COPD Awareness Month. As always, we’ll include a selection of the latest articles and CEs too!
