Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Family Practice Volume 61, Issue 07: Women’s Health: Practice Guidelines for STIS and Contraception.

The goals of this program are to improve screening for and management of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and to improve management of contraception in women with health conditions. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Screen for gonorrhea and chlamydia based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the United States Preventive Services Task Force.
2. Perform targeted and contact screening of patients with high-risk exposure to an STI.
3. Select effective treatment for gonorrhea and chlamydia.
4. Review medical eligibility criteria for hormonal contraceptive use in patients with migraine.
5. Determine risks of hormonal contraceptives in patients with diabetes or liver disease.

The original programs were presented by Peter C. Brown, Executive Director, Institute for Behavioral Healthcare Improvement, Castleton, NY, Patricia Lee, MD, Chair, Emergency Medicine, Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Chicago, IL, and Leslie S. Zun, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Emergency Medicine, Chicago Medical School and Mount Sinai Hospital, Chicago, IL.
