An evaluation of a 2-day sexually transmitted disease (STD) and HIV and AIDS curriculum for primary care providers is presented which compares large scale continuing medical education (CME) conferences with smaller clinic workshop (CW) models with regard to short-term (2-month) and long-term (10-month) program effects on STD and HIV knowledge, attitudes toward risk assessment, and frequency of both STD diagnosis and STD and HIV risk counseling.
Data from interventions held in San Antonio, Texas (328 CME ; 95 CW) replicate and extend earlier findings from a preliminary intervention, indicating nonsignificant CME-CW differences and dramatic and long-lasting gains from baseline among those with lower knowledge and experience levels preintervention.
Similar program effect magnitudes were found for attitude and practice dimensions at 2 months postintervention, with the strongest consistent short and long-term program effects observed for STD and HIV knowledge among service providers.
