Updates in Self-Collection; Direct-to-Consumer STI Testing Services; and the Future of Over-the-Counter STI Testing


This session will cover three main topics: collection of specimens in non-clinical settings for remote lab testing; direct-to-consumer (DTC) testing options and practices; and, an overview of issues to consider about over-the-counter (OTC) testing for STIs.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify regulatory needs of a direct-to-consumer program.
  • Navigate the complexities of re-test/confirmation testing of samples from people who have used a DTC option.
