Performance of the recommendations of a British advisory group for screening for chlamydia in a sample of women in general practice.

Abstract:

:In this study the performance of the guidelines produced by the British Chief Medical Officer's expert advisory group for selective screening for Chlamydia trachomatis was evaluated. The guidelines were applied to a sample of 777 women in general practice in Antwerp, Belgium. The accuracy of the screening/testing recommendations was suboptimal. The model detected 90% of infections but failed to identify a high-risk population; the population to be screened was reduced by only 21%. The focus on young age as the most important determinant for screening was not appropriate. More attention should be paid to risky sexual behaviour.
