Herpes: Health Care Provider's Guide

This 18-page colour booklet was developed to support health care providers giving herpes diagnoses to patients. It focuses on understanding emotional reactions to a herpes diagnosis and talking to patients about herpes using non-stigmatizing language. It also includes a series of frequently asked questions and suggested answers, as well as herpes supports and counselling resources.
