ABSTRACT
The article states that the possibility of pharmacological interactions between HIV medications and palliative care medications makes it essential to coordinate HIV specific and palliative care. As HIV AIDS therapies have evolved rapidly since the mid 1990s, the focus of clinical care has increasingly been on antiretroviral therapy and the complex decision making that surrounds its use. The article states that it is important to attend to the psychosocial issues involved in end of life care that may not be as familiar to today's new generation of HIV care providers as they were in the earlier era when death was inescapable.
