Screen your patients for chlamydia

Provider news | Tuesday, November 10, 2020

According to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, chlamydia is one of the most commonly reported sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States. Chlamydial infections are 10 times more prevalent than gonococcal infections in women aged 18 to 26 years. As a healthcare provider, you are trusted by your patients–you can empower your patients to take charge of their sexual health. We encourage you to talk to your patients, and perform chlamydia screening for your them by collecting urine for analysis or swabbing with ThinPrep (also used for Pap smears) during well-woman exams.

Learn more on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) website #TalkTestTreat.
