Mary Jo Hoyt, MSN, Director, Education and Capacity Development (Pictured above at left), and Joanne Phillips RN, MS, Education Specialist (above at right) presented “Reproductive Planning and Preconception Care in HIV Care Settings” at the Rutgers School of Nursing-sponsored HIV Research and Translation to Practice Day on June 27, 2016. They described their ongoing research on the delivery of preconception care for people living with HIV. Their work includes a multi-site national study examining qualitative data from 91 HIV providers in 7 cities to assess providers attitudes, knowledge, practices, and perceived barriers to reproductive planning discussions and a second study on the implementation and evaluation of a quality assurance project at the FXB Clinic that both educates clinicians about preconception care and promotes practice change.
