Key barriers to the provision of chlamydia patient delivered partner therapy (PDPT) and evaluation of distribution programs in California health care settings
In an effort to increase the use and, thereby, the effectiveness of PDPT in treating chlamydia and gonorrhea, CFHC conducted a program evaluation to better understand the current needs of PDPT distribution programs and barriers associated with PDPT provision among participating clinics. The evaluation compared actual rates of PDPT distribution to predicted levels of use, and assessed effectiveness of CFHC's current training materials, data collection, and communication with the participating agencies. Evaluation findings will be used to improve the performance of PDPT programs and integration of PDPT distribution in California family planning settings.
