Summary of "Guidance on Expedited Partner Therapy: A Content Analysis of Informational Materials for Providers, Pharmacists, Patients, and Partners."

The rates of sexually transmitted infections have steadily increased in the United States over the last 5 years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has endorsed the use of expedited partner therapy (EPT) as an evidence-based practice to prevent chlamydial reinfection in index patients and lower barriers to treatment for partners. State health departments release guidance on EPT for providers, but it is unclear if information is available for other key stakeholders, for example, pharmacists, patients, and partners. The primary objective of this study was to conduct a review of state and territory health department websites to ascertain the availability, readability, utility, and content of EPT informational materials.
