Abstract

National survey data designed to delineate clinician perspectives on the indications to hospitalize adolescents for pelvic inflammatory disease indicate that clinicians endorse care consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sexually transmitted diseases treatment guidelines but that there is less agreement on the social factors that may impair an adolescent's ability to self-care in the outpatient setting.
