- Explain evidence-based guidelines on infant feeding to mothers with HIV and recognize the environmental, psychological, familial and personal pressures to consider breastfeeding.
- Implement current CDC guidelines for syphilis screening on all pregnant women to reduce the risk of congenital syphilis transmission.
- Outline the guidelines of the NJ Medical Marijuana Program (NJ MMP) for providers and patients with HIV to determine the use of medical marijuana as a treatment alternative.
