Clinicians who see patients with or at risk for sexually transmitted infections may lack experience and skills in diagnosing and treating STIs. 

In their current practice, they may lack the appropriate skills for performing a proper male/female genital exam.  Clinicians may have

a lack of knowledge of STI signs and symptoms and may lack knowledge on appropriate tests to make a proper diagnosis, including

use of microscopy.  They may also lack knowledge in appropriate treatment of STIs in accordance with current CDC STI Treatment

Guidelines. They may lack knowledge in frequently changing diagnosis and treatment of monkeypox.  Improvements in these practice

gaps can be achievable through participants’ experience in the STI Clinical Intensive Course.

St. Louis PTC - Clinical eLearning Collaborative 2023

Target Audience: Physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses, and other health professionals who see patients with or at risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Course Description: The purpose of this community is to delve into the clinical aspects of STI prevention, diagnosis, and management and more fully understand the state-of-the-art techniques in managing our patients. If you are not a clinician, please share this invitation with the clinicians in your organization who focus on STIs. Our current list of topics include: the updated 2021 CDC STI Treatment Guidelines, individual disease entities such as Gonorrhea/Chlamydia and Syphilis, management of sexual assault and Pre- and Post - Exposure Prophylaxis, Expedited Partner Therapy, and Trauma Informed Care. An important part of any clinical learning is review of cases so our discussions will be largely case-based. The intent is to create a collaborative community- in other words, we want YOU to bring your cases and contribute topics. The sessions will be organized and moderated by the St. Louis STI/HIV PTC but the floor will be open for discussion and participation. You will be interacting with other clinical colleagues (hysicians, PAs, NPs, nurses, and other health professionals who see patients with or at risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)MD, DO, PA, NP, RN) from other health department clinics. We may even have a little friendly competition.

The Clinical eLearning Community will be held virtually on Zoom.
