Let’s Talk Syphilis: Mom and Baby

March 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

- Free

Rates of syphilis are on the rise in Saskatchewan. Pregnancy is an important time to screen for syphilis. The appropriate management of a pregnant woman with infectious syphilis, including early treatment of her baby, helps prevent serious adverse consequences.

This Webinar Addresses:
  • the epidemiology of STIs
  • screening tests and interpretation of test results
  • management of cases and contacts of infectious syphilis
  • why STIs remain an important risk to fetal, newborn, and infant health
  • population health practices of routine screening
  • how enhanced screening during critical times are important key interventions
  • how treatment during pregnancy and pre-conception are preferred options than waiting to manage newborn cases

This webinar is targeted towards healthcare providers who assist with STBBI cases or contacts follow-up, and community members who assist in outreach activities to support clients to engage in health care.
