Rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also referred to as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), in the United States are at an all-time high. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 20 million new STD cases are reported in the United States every year. Left untreated, STDs can be transmitted to others and may lead to adverse health outcomes. From 2010 – 2014, urgent care centers experienced a 3x increase in visits by persons diagnosed with STDs. More and more patients are turning to urgent care centers for treatment of potential STDs. Urgent care workers play a vital role not only in diagnosing and treating STDs, but also in educating patients on STD prevention. In this course, you will learn to identify and treat the most commonly encountered sextually transmitted infections in the urgent care setting.
