A guide for clinical care
In areas of Western Australia (WA), the incidence of some sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is at epidemic levels. As part of its continued response to this problem, the Western Australian Department of Health (WA Health) is continuously updating these clinical guidelines, aiming to promote the principles of best practice to the wide range of providers who are responsible for STI management in this State.
These guidelines deal with the syndromic approach to STIs, as well as management of the notifiable STIs and a range of non-notifiable STIs. They are designed for all clinicians and health care providers involved in the diagnosis and/or management of STIs.
This new web-based edition of the guidelines contains the most up to date evidence-based practice recommendations and is complemented with a range of patient and health professional resources.
