We’ve been fans of the CDC’s STD treatment guidelines app for awhile. The CDC STD treatment guide app gives you specific medication dosing for STDs. Making sure you are treating STDs with the the most current recommendations is important, especially with STD antibiotic resistance starting to become a concern. 2015 saw updates to various treatment regimes as well.
The CDC just launched an update to their STD app that will enable push notifications. Push notifications by the CDC will now update health providers when there are changes in treatment recommendations. They also have a contact section that let’s you reach them directly if there are any issues using the app.
If you don’t have the CDC STD treatment guide app make sure to download it, and if you already do — make sure to update it.
We also have published a list all of the CDC’s free medical apps that every physician should have.
