They encourage and engage patients to review PfH materials that are available in the waiting rooms and re-inforce the prevention messages. ACHC has also re-designed education materials to be more visible and portable (PfH content was NOT changed) ACHC has also made available 3 safer sex education kits, which are located in clinic interview rooms, to assist inproviding hands-on learning (male and female condoms) *DEBI: diffusion of effective behavioral intevention

11 So, how do these process, outcomes and intervention change the STD transmission?
13 Need county-wide clinics initiative and buy in PfH should be at every clinic Patient reporting accuracy (underreporting of % condom use) Patient reporting fatigue (“just say yes to all”) Providers intervention at every follow up visit (clinical staff buy in) Thoughts from this experience
14 Re-design templates Re-assign questioning role to Medical Assistants Need to easily “query” the data Bi-annual audits to track and trend PDSA Changes and modifications
15 PfH eMDs template (draft) 9/11: added in the new EMR template (eMDs)
