SHINE SA have released two new short videos that provide advice for clinicians on syphilis symptoms and treatment. This resource expands on our syphilis overview for clinicians.
Syphilis presents a serious public health issue as it causes harm to the developing foetus and increases the transmission and acquisition of HIV. With an increase in syphilis cases in South Australia it is important that health professionals understand the signs, symptoms, stages and treatment.
The following set of videos presented by Sexual Health Physician, Dr Carole Khaw will cover the topics of Signs, Symptoms and Stages as well as Serology and Treatment:
Syphilis Signs, Symptoms and Stages Video
Syphilis Serology and Treatment Video
We encourage you to share these new video resources with your colleagues and organisation.
