Sexually Transmitted Infections
1. Becky, age 17, has just been diagnosed with chlamydia. The doctor at the adolescent health clinic has asked the nurse to discuss chlamydia and the prevention of other STIs with Becky. The nurse collects the proper educational materials and starts reviewing them with Becky. Becky tells the nurse this isn’t the first time she has had chlamydia, but she says she isn’t concerned about the infection and knows the medication will cure it. She has had several partners in the past few months and isn’t sure who gave chlamydia to her. (Learning Objectives 2, 3, and 4)
