STIs in General Practice

Time: 6:15pm to 9:15pm, 12/09/19

Event Detail:

This course for ACT General Practitioners is FREE. Dinner will be provided.

In the ACT, chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis are on the rise.  From 2015-2018, chlamydia notifications increased each year, gonorrhoea notifications more than doubled and syphilis notifications more than tripled.  These trends appear to be continuing in 2019, based on notification data received by ACT Health for the first half of 2019.

GPs play a critical role in the detection and management of STIs in the ACT.  Through presentations and case studies this update will provide GPs with enhanced knowledge and skills for STI testing and management in their practice, with a particular focus on chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis.

Session Detail:

Objectives of the course include:

  • Identify appropriate patients to routinely test for STIs and
  • confidently take a brief sexual health history
  • Describe the clinical presentation of common STIs
  • Diagnose and treat common STIs
  • Initiate contact tracing and patient referrals where necessary
  • Understand the impact of stigma and discrimination on client outcomes
