Chlamydia Screening Case Example

Case Example: Carefully Framing Chlamydia Screening Questions

Staff at an SBHC in Colorado found that carefully framing the screening question was a key step to identify students at risk for Chlamydia infections. Instead of asking “Are you sexually active?”, SBHC providers started with “Have you ever had sex in your life?” This method yielded a greater, more accurate number of at-risk students who would benefit from a sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) screening.
