Combat the Rise in STIs: Make Testing a Priority on Your Campus with Opt-out Screening
Sponsored by the American Sexual Health Association — National Chlamydia Coalition with support from Hologic
Room: Balboa A-C
With sexually transmitted infections (STIs) at an all-time high, the CDC now recommends opt-out screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea. By implementing routine STI screening, you can reduce missed opportunities and ensure patients receive the most comprehensive care by identifying infections among those who do not disclose sexual behavior. Join us as Dr. Ina Park walks through common provider/patient scenarios to illustrate this strategy in a clinical setting. You’ll learn about ASHA programs where you can earn CE credits, too! Lunch will be provided.
Ina Park, MD, MS, Professor, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine; MD Director, California Prevention Training Center; Medical Consultant, CDC Division of STD Prevention
