ThinkGP: Key features in managing STIs

This module from ThinkGP looks at STI and HIV risk, encouraging increased testing in practices and identifying patient populations at a higher risk of contracting STIs.

A wide range of case studies examine ways of approaching STI and HIV testing and treatment and promoting safe sexual practice using the STI Testing Tool.

By completing this learning activity, participants will be able to:
  • Increase knowledge in current practice of STI management with an aim to increase STI testing in your practice.
  • Identify which of your patient populations are most at risk of an STI and are a priority for testing.
  • Identify all young adults under the age of 29 years as needing STI testing as a part of usual and ongoing health care.
  • Communicate and negotiate STI testing and treatment, safe sex, condom use and contact tracing in a time efficient approach.
  • Ensure patient safety by providing accurate and current information to support STI management and making the GP the primary provider of STI advice.
