This presenta- tion reviews developments in the field of HIV/AIDS Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND) and how these disorders impact a person’s real world functioning in areas such as employment, social interaction and self-care. While pharmacological developments have dramatically reduced the occurrence of the most severe form of HAND, known as HIV Associated Dementia (HAD), persons with HIV/AIDS may experience significant cognitive deficits that interfere with ability to maintain or resume functional capacity, lead to unemployment, and warrant rehabilitation in multiple domains. Even seasoned care managers may be challenged by the complexities of care planning for those living HAND. Participants will learn the common symptoms of HAND. How these symptoms impact functioning, and case management strategies to help.
