About STI Management Guidelines
The Australian STI Management Guidelines are developed under the aegis of ASHA.
The latest annual critical review of the guidelines was completed in April 2016.
The Guidelines are an online resource for primary care health professionals and provide concise information to support the prevention, testing, diagnosis, management and treatment of STIs for adults and adolescents.
A Steering Committee, chaired by Associate Professor Richard Hillman, and an Editorial Subcommittee, chaired by Dr Chris Bourne, oversaw the Guidelines, while ASHM secretariat staff provided the support.
The Steering Committee included representatives from ASHM, ASHA, Royal Australian College of Physicians; Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine (AChSHM), Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA), Family Planning Alliance Australia (FPAA), Australian Indigenous Doctors' Association (AIDA), Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), Australian College of Nurse Practitioners (ACNP) and the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID), as well as individuals experienced in the development of STI guidelines.
