Sexual Assault

Sexually Transmitted Infections: Epidemiology in Indian Country (CE Opportunity)

Understanding the landscape of sexually transmitted infections in your community is a critical part of effectively caring for sexual assault patients. National treatment guidelines are well and good, but if the clinical picture is different where you are, then adapting those guidelines becomes a necessity. To that end, Indian Health Services has an upcoming webinar that should be helpful for those providing care in Indian Country–Sexually Transmitted¬†Infections: Epidemiology in Indian Country and Screening and Treatment Recommendations. The session will be held April 14th at 3pm ET.¬†CEs are available for nurses.


At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize the epidemiology of STIs in Indian Country.
  2. Apply appropriate standard screening and treatment recommendations for STIs to help increase screening rates in Indian Country.
  3. Identify the special populations and their different STI testing needs to increase case finding in those populations and in turn reduce total STI burden.
