A trial of the distribution of chlamydia self-collection postal specimen kits from Australian community pharmacies
Emmerton, Lynne, Buhrer Skinner, Monika, Gardiner, Elliroma, Nissen, Lisa, & Debattista, Joseph (2011) A trial of the distribution of chlamydia self-collection postal specimen kits from Australian community pharmacies. Sexual Health, 8(1), pp. 130-132.
We explored the feasibility of community pharmacies for the distribution of chlamydia specimen self-collection kits, which featured a transport medium allowing postage of urine specimens in Australia. Eligible clients were requested to complete a code-matched risk-screening questionnaire in the pharmacy, and the derived risk scores were compared to the test results from the corresponding specimen. Four Queensland pharmacies distributed 156 kits, while 44 questionnaires and 18 specimens were received.
