Description
Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) are common among adolescents. This case focuses on thepopulation-based prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. The case begins with clinical,diagnostic, and laboratory management of an adolescent female diagnosed with gonorrhea.Students then examine how the diagnosis of an STD can be used as an opportunity to providepreventive care and counseling on safer sexual behaviors. Questions addressing HIV testing andcounseling are included in this section. Students proceed to explore how the diagnosis andreporting of an STD calls for interaction, such as partner notification, between clinical providersand public health departments. Finally, students are provided with actual information from localfocus groups on attitudes and behaviors of high-risk adolescents. At the conclusion of the case,they are asked to interpret the data and formulate strategies to decrease gonorrhea rates in the
