A method for identifying persons at high risk for sexually transmitted infections : opportunity for targeting intervention.
The purpose of this study was to develop a method to identify persons at high risk for acquiring new sexually transmitted infections.
Computerized medical records from sexually transmitted disease clinics in Dade County, Florida, were used to conduct a retrospective cohort study.
For all patients who visited in 1987, risk factors were identified for returning to the clinics within a year with a new sexually transmitted infection.
Predictor variables were derived from the index visit and any visits in the year prior to the index visit.
