About the Videos
The demonstration videos present four dramatizations of sexual history-taking interviews, illustrating situations in which staff assesses whether or not testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea and HIV should be done. You will meet:
- Alison, a 16-year-old adolescent client
- Marco, a 27-year-old new client
- Anna, a 30-year-old woman with a long-time partner
- Nicole, a 29-year-old woman coming for her annual exam
Each scenario is analyzed by experts from the field to give concrete examples of "do's and don'ts". Recommendations for testing are provided at the end of each scenario.
Clinicians, nurses, medical assistants and any reproductive health care staff who interview clients to obtain a sexual history.
The video is separated below into five sections: Introduction, Scenario #1, Scenario #2, Scenario #3, and Scenario #4.
