Sexually transmitted infections continue to be a source of significant morbidity in people with a history of incarceration, particularly women. Justice-involved women are at exceptionally high risk of long-lasting and severe health consequences of contracting an STI. This evidence-based practice implementation project used a repeated measures design to compare sexually transmitted infection knowledge acquisition and condom use self-efficacy in a group of incarcerated women before, immediately after, and three weeks following participation in the Safer Sex Self-Efficacy Workshop. Of the participants (N= 21), 100% demonstrated a significant increase in sexually transmitted infection knowledge and condom use self-efficacy between pre- and post-test scores of the Sexually Transmitted Disease Questionnaire and the Condom use Self-efficacy Scale and maintained those increases at the three-week follow-up.
