Field-Delivered Therapy (FDT)


What is FDT?

Field-Delivered Therapy (FDT) is the delivery of medication or a prescription in the field (typically at a home) to clients, their partner(s) or both, and is an appropriate option for individuals who are at increased risk for STIs, underinsured or uninsured, unable, or unlikely to seek treatment in a timely fashion. Trained health department staff conduct FDT under the oversight of a health department physician.

When should I make a referral? 

Many individuals encounter significant obstacles when accessing essential clinical services. It is essential to refer your patients to the program as soon as you know they may have difficulty accessing treatment or completing a course of treatment. 

How do I make a referral?

If you would like your patient to be considered for the FDT Program, please complete the referral form and fax it back to CDPHE. All referrals will be reviewed within 48 hours. For immediate concerns, call the Prevention & Field Services Program at 303-692-6226.
