Abstract

Adolescents (N = 392) attending 2 urban adolescent health clinics in 2010 were surveyed regarding likelihood completing expedited partner therapy (EPT), by bringing a partner exposed to chlamydia a prescription. Eighty-five percent (330/387; 95% confidence interval, 81%-89%), reported acceptance of EPT. Adjusted analyses showed higher education, notification self-efficacy, and romantic partner were associated with EPT acceptance.
