Abstract
The neurocognitive complaints among HIV infected patients remain frequent, and to establish their etiology can be challenging. We created in 2011 an outpatient Neuro-HIV clinical platform that takes advantage of a multidisciplinary approach with 5 specialists (neuropsychologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, infectiologist and neuroradiologist). In order to estimate its utility, we conducted two questionnaire-based interviews by phone calls with the patients and their referring physicians. Three quarters of both the patients and the physicians interviewed consider the platform useful or essential. Even though there is often no immediate treatment for cognitive disorders, the patients receive from this multidisciplinary approach a better understanding of their disease, which may help them to better cope with their anxieties in daily life.
