Abstract

Uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for more than eight million visits to ambulatory clinics each year and this illness is one of the most common reasons for antibiotic use. Approximately nine million women diagnosed with uncomplicated UTI received antibiotic therapy lasting 7-10 days in duration. Although antibiotic therapy is the standard treatment for these infections, the overuse and poor management has led to the development of resistant organisms which are difficult to treat and often lead to other complications. The purpose of this continuing education program is to educate nurse practitioners about the treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections.
