For over 10 years, Saskatchewan has had the highest annual rate of new HIV and hepatitis C (HCV) diagnoses in the country. The province now has one of the fastest growing rates of syphilis infections in Canada. This is resulting in an urgent need to educate primary care providers how to recognize, test, treat and manage these sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBI) in their clinics, and when to consult or refer to a specialist.

In response, USask CME is pleased to offer the STBBI Treatment Education Program for Saskatchewan (STEPS).

  • This program is intended for primary care physicians, family medicine residents, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses working in Saskatchewan.
  • Other allied health care professions providing care to patients living with, or at risk of acquiring, STBBIs are also welcomed to participate.
