Adolescents often present with vague symptoms for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). A majority are underrecognized and untreated at the time of presentation. Also, a large proportion is lost to follow-up. This webinar will discuss testing methods for detecting common STIs and patient education strategies to reduce recurrence.

Trichomoniasis, the most common non-viral sexually transmitted infection, is underdiagnosed due to lack of screening, surveillance, and control programs. The most commonly used diagnostic test lacks sensitivity. Undertreating trichomoniasis can lead to adverse health outcomes and persistence of infection in sexual networks. This webinar evaluates a modern approach to managing this neglected disease.

Adoption of innovative POC STI testing allows for superior patient care, precise use of antibiotics for treatment, and adds an opportunity to provide counseling and preventive measures. Patients benefit from the right treatment for the right problem, and experience less anxiety and distress. Practices benefit from the speed and accuracy of testing, which results in staff efficiency of care and less time charting, allowing for more patient encounters.

In addition to providing updates on epidemiology, clinical relevance, and treatment recommendations, this webinar will examine the challenges associated with Trichomonas diagnosis, discuss issues surrounding drug resistance, and review patient management including the 2021 CDC guidelines for Trichomonas testing & treatment.
Gary Schoolnik, MD • December 9, 2021
On December 9, 2021, NACCHO, the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD), and the National Association of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) hosted a webinar on a new point-of-care technology for testing of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and the impact of its use for health departments.
Glenn Harnett, MD, FCUCM, CEO • December 8, 2021
This webinar will present the 2021 CDC STI guidelines, dive into the challenges with traditional STI testing and the impact on antibiotic stewardship and review what is needed to combat the growing number of antibiotic resistant STI.
Gary Schoolnik, MD • October 5, 2021
In this on-demand video, infectious disease expert Gary Schoolnik, MD will present recent advances in nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT) methodology, and instrument-free single-use PCR (polymerase chain reaction) in particular, that provides both accuracy and speed of results at the point of care. Such advancements for STI enables clinicians to make results-driven diagnoses for correct treatment, all while the patient is till at the clinic visit, for a more focused clinician-patient dialogue and teachable moment.
