NICE update – The Management of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) in Primary Care
1 in 10 females each year present with a UTI and 70% of these are treated with antibiotics.
75% of patients treated for a UTI within hospital have a community-acquired infection.
How can pharmacy professionals support in educating their patients and help improve the use of antimicrobial medication in primary care?
This webinar recording includes an update on the latest guidance and practical ideas of how you might improve outcomes for your patients and support overall prudent prescribing in this area.
After the recording participants will be able to:
- Explain the All Wales UTI/NICE guidelines regarding UTI diagnosis and management
- Identify patients requiring special consideration when managing their UTIs
- Recognise those patients presenting with “red flag” symptoms for referral
- Provide appropriate advice for self-care and prevention of a UTI
- Discuss strategies for working with their health care colleagues to improve prescribing and monitoring of treatment in practice
