Information for clinics thinking about participating in the MoCCA Study
What is MoCCA?
MoCCA is a five-year project funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (APP1150014) that seeks to address gaps in chlamydia management in Australian general practice. In particular, MoCCA focuses on improving testing for repeat infection within recommended timeframes, improving partner management, and increasing clinician confidence in diagnosing PID. The research team is based at the University of Melbourne.
What does participation involve?
We are currently recruiting clinics to participate in the MoCCA study for a period of up to 18 months. Clinics will be asked to implement interventions designed to strengthen management of genital chlamydia infections. These interventions focus on partner management, retesting within recommended timeframes, and increasing clinician confidence in diagnosing PID.
Specifically, GPs and other relevant staff will be asked to:
- Attend clinic meetings with the research team via Zoom or in person
- Use the MoCCA website and interventions for chlamydia care (you can find those here!)
- Provide feedback about the use of the interventions through participation in short anonymous polls/surveys, or participate in a brief interview with the research team.
Participating clinics will be reimbursed $2000.
