  1. Service attributes and the choice for STD health services in persons seeking a medical examination for an STD.

    Article - En anglais

    This article examines choice for STD health services among patients suspecting a STD.

    A total of 825 patients who sought medical treatment at an STD clinic, a Family Planning Clinic or a General Practitioner participated in this study.

    Special STD clinics are not well known among patients visiting their GP or a Family Planning Clinic.

    Both perceived unprofessionality and embarrassment were reasons for not asking a GP for medical treatment and for not being loyal to their GP after a first visit.

    Most respondents evaluate the 16 service attributes as important and/or annoying.

    Differences in beliefs and evaluations about the separate service attributes existed between the three choice behavior groups.
