Urinary Tract Infection information leaflet for older adults

January 12, 2019 at 7:31 PM

We are delighted to announce that we have finalised the development of a UTI information leaflet for older adults who have urinary symptoms or may be at risk of future UTIs. The leaflet may also be used during primary care consultations to facilitate dialogue between a patient and their GP on specific topics like treatment or safety netting. It is important that the leaflet is used as a tool to interact with patients, rather than as a ‘parting gift’. 
The UTI for older adults information leaflet can be found in the “leaflets to share with patients” section of the TARGET website: www.rcgp.org.uk/targetantibiotics
We are happy to receive feedback about how you have used or implemented this leaflet and any constructive comments on how it can be improved. Please contact the TARGET team via email at TARGETantibiotics@phe.gov.uk.
