Deriving a psychosocial clinical prediction rule to target sexual healthcare to women attending British general practice settings

  • Natalie Edelman (Presenter)

    Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


    High rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and of unintended pregnancies are issues of global concern. In Britain part of the response has been to widen the availability of STI testing and contraception advice and supply to primary care. Natalie will discuss her work developing a psychosocial clinical prediction rule to target these interventions to women attending British primary care settings (specifically General Practices). This work addresses two other under-researched areas; the relationship between STI risk in women and unintended pregnancy risk, and psychosocial predictors of those risks. Natalie will present key findings from three inter-related studies, and discuss how clinical prediction rules sit at the cusp of population health and clinical medicine, creating unique tensions.
