please consult the Canadian STI Guidelines.
This summary was developed by Clinical Prevention Services at the BC Centre for Disease Control in consultation with the British Columbia Health Authorities to give primary care clinicians a brief, easy-to-use, reference tool for the treatment of common sexually transmitted infections. This tool is not meant to be comprehensive and clinicians are encouraged to consult the full document (Canadian Guidelines on Sexually Transmitted Infections) for more details, including diagnostics.
Canadian Guidelines on Sexually Transmitted Infections - Canadian STI Guidelines have been written for primary health care providers. They are intended to assist in the prevention and appropriate management of STI in Canada.
