DC Program Closes Knowledge Gap on EPT
Posted in Updates on 3.6.2017
Alosa Health’s program in Washington, DC is having a measurable impact on healthcare providers’ knowledge of expedited partner therapy (EPT) to manage patients with STIs and their current partners. Among healthcare providers who received academic detailing through our program, none were previously aware that EPT was permitted in Washington, DC. Yet, after participating in academic detailing, all stated they would be willing to prescribe EPT in the appropriate circumstances. We are so proud to see that our work is driving behavior change, and grateful for the continued support of our DC DOH partners at HAHSTA!
