This article discusses the UK’s most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, Chlamydia. It outlines the nurse’s role in diagnosis, treatment and health promotion, including encouraging condom use, medications, partner notification and emphasising the importance of avoiding sexual intercourse until drug therapy is completed and any symptoms have gone.
