Innovative Resources Could Help Improve Partner Notification for Chlamydia in Primary Care
June 23, 2010
General practitioners (GPs) in Australia support a wide range of possible resources to improve partner notification for chlamydia, the current report shows.
Of respondents, 223 (95 percent) felt it was their role to discuss partner notification with patients diagnosed with chlamydia. Only 105 (45 percent), however, were sure how best to assist their patients with this. The results indicated considerable variation in the way partner notification was undertaken, including how far back in time GPs recommended contacting partners.
