Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT)

The New York State Department of Health recommends Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT) to facilitate partner management among individuals diagnosed with chlamydia, gonorrhea, and/or trichomoniasis -- it's the clinical practice of providing individuals
with medication or a prescription to deliver to their sexual partner(s) as presumptive treatment for a STI, without completing a clinical assessment of those partners.

Do any of your facilities have established workflows for EPT that you would be willing to share?

Thanks in advance!
