  • Point-of-care tests (POCT) are an important strategy to address the epidemic of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among both adolescents and young adults. Although access to care and confidentiality are major barriers to STI care, POCTs allow the clinician to provide immediate and confidential test results and treatment. In addition, POCT results constitute a teachable moment; that is, an opportunity to provide immediate feedback to the patient that may impact his/her risk behaviors.
