Spring Safety Checklist
April is Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Awareness Month. While STD's are often not true medical emergencies they are frequently seen in the ER. We will discuss commonly seen STDs such as Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HIV and HPV. We will discuss their health implications and how we as emergency physicians test and treat patients, as well as how to prevent them.
