Canadian Guidelines on Sexually Transmitted Infections


Background

The Canadian Guidelines on Sexually Transmitted Infections were created as a resource for clinical and public health professionals especially nurses and physicians for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) across a diverse patient population, including neonates, children, adolescents and adults.

Since the release of the STI Guidelines 2006 Edition, the Expert Working Group for the STI Guidelines which includes STI experts from the fields of medicine, nursing, laboratory, public health and research have volunteered their time and effort as authors and reviewers to maintain updated, evidence-based recommendations. On-going changes to the STI Guidelines reflect emerging issues and highlights changes in STI literature.
