The effective detection and management of sexually transmitted infections (STI) in our patient populations is integral to health and overall well-being. Of concern are patients who have experienced sexual assault as they are at particular risk and require STI evaluation immediately following the assault, as well as during the recommended follow up examination. It is important that caregivers are competent and confident when caring for this vulnerable and complex patient population.
This webinar will provide an overview the medications typically offered to patients who have experienced sexually assault. The webinar will focus on building skills to rapidly evaluate and assess the needs of your regional patient population. Discussion will focus particularly on medication updates for Pregnancy Prophylaxis – such as Ella and Plan B, as well as HIV nPEP (Non-occupational Post Exposure Prophylaxis), and the ability to provide a low to no cost 30-day post exposure regimen to your patients.
Don't miss your opportunity to:
- Understand the difference between Ella and Plan B and how they relate to the care of the sexual assault patient.
- Understand how to assist patients to obtain HIV nPEP at greatly reduced cost to the patient.
- Understand antibiograms and the importance of regionally specific antimicrobial susceptibility testing data.
- Identify clear informational resources for information on sexually transmitted infections impacting patients who have experienced recent sexual assault.
You will need to register in advance for this Webinar. Webinar is scheduled for September 16, 2020 at 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EST). Question and answer session will immediately follow.
