The STIEF Professional Advisory Group

A Professional Advisory Group (PAG) has been appointed to support the Sexually Transmitted Infections Education Foundation (STIEF) by way of providing independent advice, review and update of the clinical guidelines and to ensure that our information is accurate and up-to-date. The operation of the PAG is based on international best practice as it is comprised of key subject matter experts who represent each of the specialist medical disciplines involved in the management of sexually transmitted infections, together with representatives from general practice, patient counselling (nurse counsellor) and a consumer advocate.
