In this one-hour webinar, we will discuss the incidence and pathway of UTIs, antibiotic stewardship, and defense mechanisms. Risk factors, diagnosis, non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic treatment, prevention, and best practice will also be covered.

By the end of this webinar, the learner should be able to:

  • Explain the importance of preventing recurrent UTIs with regards to antibiotic stewardship
  • Develop evidence-based strategies for evaluating and treating patients with recurrent UTIs
  • Communicate effectively with patients about treatment strategies to prevent recurrent UTIs
