92381 - Urinary tract infections: exploring antibiotic treatment - National Case Study

  • : Online

This online case study will help you to reflect on your clinical decision-making and improve management of urinary tract infections for your patients. You’ll learn about UTI diagnosis, how to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance, good prescribing practice principles and how to choose the most appropriate antibiotic treatment options. You’ll receive instant feedback on your results and be able to compare your results with your peers and have access to expert commentary by leading microbiologist Dr Tony Korman.

Relevance to General Practice

Urinary tract infections are common in community and hospital settings. Women have a one-in-three chance of developing a urinary tract infection in their lifetime, which is 50 times more than men. A large number of antibiotic prescriptions are written for these infections and most symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs) require antibiotics. Due to the development of resistance to common antibiotics and the emergence of ‘superbugs’ in Australia and overseas, the management of UTIs is changing. 

This activity includes recommendations from the new Therapeutic Guidelines released in November 2014. 

Learning outcomes
  • Classify diagnosis based on presenting symptoms
  • Define management of a urinary tract infection to reduce antibiotic resistance
  • Determine prophylactic management options for recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Implement a systematic approach to review patient's current medicines and their ongoing use
