STD Clinical Consultation Network Overview
The National Network of STD Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC) officially launched the STD Clinical Consultation Network (STD CCN) on June 22, 2015 at the Division of STD Prevention’s 2015 STD Treatment Guidelines national webinar. STD CCN is the first online medical consultation system for the treatment and management of STDs nationally. This innovative network connects healthcare providers to expert STD faculty from the regional Prevention Training Center that serves their state. STD CCN is available during business hours, 5 days a week and providers can request consultation services in 1-5 business days based on the urgency of the question. STD medical consultation requests are submitted online at stdccn.org or via email or phone calls to regional PTC faculty. If consults are submitted outside of STD CCN (phone or email to a PTC clinical faculty member), regional PTC staff enter the consult into the system to ensure tracking and documentation of the consultation.
