Clinical Utility of Testing Symptomatic Women for Both Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) & Vaginitis
Description: Symptoms related to vaginitis are one of the most common reasons women present for evaluation in the primary care and ob-gyn setting. These bothersome symptoms can be caused by a variety of pathogens including yeast, bacteria associated with bacterial vaginosis, and Trichomonas vaginalis. Current in-office testing modalities, such as microscopy or visual inspection of discharge, can be highly subjective, time consuming, or may require special training or equipment, risking a missed diagnosis. Additionally, many people at risk for vaginitis are also at risk for common sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea, making it critical to test for both vaginitis and STIs in the same patient. This presentation will educate the audience on the infections themselves, the available testing modalities and the value of using sensitive molecular tests for diagnosing symptomatic women for both vaginitis and STIs.
Following this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1. Define the disease state of common causes of vaginitis and nonviral STIs
2. Review current testing methodologies for vaginitis
3. Educate on the value of using sensitive molecular tests for diagnosing symptomatic women for both vaginitis and STIs
