Given that over 60% of Canadians in this age category are sexually active (Rotermann, 2005) and many of them do not visit a physician in a given year, it is very clear that far fewer sexually active young people in Canada are screened for chlamydia than as recommended by the CTFPHE and other chlamydia screening guidelines.
We defined an "unclear" guideline as a "C" recommendation (insufficient evidence to recommend the maneuver) from the Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination (CTFPHE).[4] Guidelines were "conflicting" when at least 2 organizations gave different recommendations for the same cancer screening examination.
Despite the CTFPHE guidelines,[4] inconsistencies in practice remain.
