WA STI Strategy – disease management and clinical care

Assess and implement effective tools and activities

Tools and activities to improve STI treatment, management and referral will be assessed and where viable, implemented.

This will be actioned through:

  • educating health professionals by integrating STI testing and treatment into existing service delivery at appropriate routine visits
  • supporting community education to encourage increased STI testing
  • educating priority populations about de-stigmatising STI treatment and management
  • promoting online STI clinical treatment, management and referral tools.

Improve models of care

Models of care for priority populations in primary health care settings will be continually improved.

This will be achieved through:

  • supporting the extended scope of practice for registered nurses and Aboriginal health workers to improve models of care for priority populations
  • supporting health services to re-orient physical environments to be more inclusive of priority populations
  • promoting online STI clinical treatment, management and referral tools.
