Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s) are some of the most common bacterial infections affecting adults worldwide, leading to significant antibiotic prescribing. In many of these patients the symptoms return and many are treated for ‘Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections’ and suffer debilitating symptoms including Chronic Pain. This together with the rising antibiotic residence we are seeing often leaves us with many challenging patients and looking at alternative treatment therapies.
This webinar is aimed at clinicians (medical and non medical) who are working with patients who are suffering with recurrent Urinary Tract Infections. The webinar is delivered by expert speakers from several specialties reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of this condition. Topics covered include: diagnosis, service requirement, antimicrobial stewardship & prescribing, vaccines, antiseptics vs antibiotic usage.
