Abstract

Background/introduction
Sante is a study to improve targeted sexual health promotion in UK sexual health (SH) clinics.
Aim(s)/objectives
We explored opportunities and challenges for delivering interventions including 1:1 and group sessions, digital and video interventions.
Methods
Semi-structured interviews were conducted by telephone with healthcare providers (HCPs) from a range of clinics, by location, size, and patient mix. Data were analysed thematically using a framework approach. A web-survey was sent to key HCP contacts in SH services in England.
Results
Interviews (n = 26) showed that digital interventions were viewed as logistically and financially feasible; some clinics reported already using them. All clinics provided brief 1:1 sessions, but challenges to delivery were identified as: lack of evidence for effectiveness on behaviours; costs and staff resourcing; and patient motivation. Videos received mixed opinions, they were seen as a practical option for providing STI information while patients wait, but issues about appropriateness were raised. HCPs had concerns about the feasibility of group sessions within clinic-based settings, while acknowledging their usefulness for outreach. The web-survey is ongoing; preliminary data indicates that clinics would like to be able to offer mobile apps, online education and videos (Table 1).
