What is Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT)?
Expedited partner therapy (EPT) is therapy by which partners of STD patients are treated without an examination and without counseling messages.
Why is EPT justified?
Due to high number of cases and costs of provider referral, additional tools are needed for controlling gonorrhea and chlamydia in many regions of the U.S. The CDC and the AMA recommend that EPT be considered and implemented as a partner management strategy.
How can the EPT Toolkit help?
This Web-based EPT Toolkit can assist providers in exploring whether, how, and when to implement EPT as a partner management strategy.
