Putting the QFP into Practice Series:

STD Services in the Family Planning Setting-

Assessment, Counseling and Education

Thursday, August 6th, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Time




The QFP advises family planning providers to consider the need for STD services for all clients, including those without an STD-related "reason for the visit." How do you assess a particular client's need for STD services? How do you then use what you've learned from the assessment to inform your counseling and education approach? 

This fourth session of the Putting the QFP into Practice Series outlines the steps for conducting a comprehensive sexual health assessment, along with strategies for providing quality client-centered counseling and education to help clients reduce their risk for STDs. The webinar will include case study demonstrations of assessment, counseling and education approaches and skills.
