In case you missed it: Sexually transmitted infections in Ontario webinar series
20 April 2017
Recordings and slides from Public Health Ontario’s three-part series on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in Ontario are now available!
The World Health Organization estimates that 357 million new STIs are acquired annually. Canada and Ontario have seen troubling growth in the rates of STIs in the last several years.
This series is directed towards those working in or studying sexual health in public health, health care and community settings.
These presentations will help you to:
- Learn about changes in the epidemiology of STIs, including the rates and volume of cases, geographical distribution and priority populations.
- Understand available diagnostic methods, and recommendations and considerations for testing.
- Apply treatment recommendations for chlamydia, gonorrhea and infectious syphilis, as well as additional case and contact management considerations.
