This is the first book to provide practical and accessible guidance for frontline nurses in the delivery of effective, compassionate care to patients with STIs. With a focus on these infections as a growing global-health problem, this book helps facilitate early identification, treatment, and prevention, including counseling and behavioral interventions. This guide reviews common sexually transmitted diseases in depth, providing epidemiology, risk factors, signs and symptoms, long-term sequelae, disease transmission, diagnosis, and recommended treatment. It focuses on nursing-specific interventions that include understanding a sensitive and appropriate patient history, interpreting a holistic consideration of patient lifestyle, and linking population-specific patient education and counseling.

Written in quick-access Fast Facts format with bulleted information and concise paragraphs, each disease-related chapter provides a lifespan-specific section on pregnant women, adolescents and older adult patients, and nursing considerations for setting specific patient approaches. Links to government websites, such as updated screening guidelines, are incorporated throughout.
