Developer's Description

Note: This application is intended for use by HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, and not the general public. For general information on STIs, refer to: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/healthy-living-vie-saine/sexual-sexuelle/index-eng.php This application provides Canadian health professionals with up to date recommendations for the screening, diagnosis, management, and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, including recommendations for antibiotic resistant gonorrhea, in a convenient, concise, and easy to use format.The Canadian Guidelines on Sexually Transmitted Infections are a resource for primary care and public health professionals for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of STIs.The content of the Guidelines is guided by an Expert Working Group which includes STI experts from the fields of medicine, nursing, laboratory, public health and research who volunteer their time and effort as authors, advisors and reviewers to maintain updated, evidence-based recommendations. The content contained within this application is reflective of the most current evidence for the management of uncomplicated STIs in adults and youth only. It does not contain information for the management of STIs in pregnant women, children, neonates or complicated infections. The application has been developed from the 2010 version of the Canadian Guidelines on Sexually Transmitted Infections (http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/std-mts/sti-its/), as well as 2014 Interim Guidance developed by the Expert Working Group. These updates reflect emerging issues/trends affecting the management of STIs in Canada. Up to date information from other complementary resources has also been incorporated, including key recommendations from the HIV Screening and Testing Guide (2012) (http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/aids-sida/guide/hivstg-vihgdd-eng.php) and the Management of Hepatitis B - Quick Reference (2013) (http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/publicat/hep/hbv-vhb/index-eng.php).This application is intended to provide information to public health and clinical professionals and does not supersede any provincial/territorial legislative, regulatory, policy and practice requirements or professional guidelines that govern the practice of health professionals in their respective jurisdictions, whose recommendations may differ due to local epidemiology or context.
