Empiric Treatment for Sexually Transmitted Infections Resource Tool

Increases in testing needs for COVID-19 cases has resulted in a global shortage of Aptima® urine transport kits, unisex swabs and other laboratory testing supplies used for diagnosis of common sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Despite the reduced availability of testing supplies, there is not a shortage of STIs among our sexually active patients. Don’t let the lack of testing prevent you from ensuring that your patients are receiving adequate care and treatment.

Partners For Kids has created a resource tool, Empiric Treatment for Sexually Transmitted Infections, that includes:

  • When to consider treating for an STI
  • Recommended treatment regimens
  • Clinical pearls for patient counseling and medication administration.
