For patients and providers, few things are more frustrating than recurrent UTIs. Patients can feel like they have done something wrong; NPs can feel like they can’t meet the needs of their patients. But really, for such a (relatively) black-and-white issue, there are some subtleties that can make all the difference in whether or not you are able to solve the issue.

This week, let’s talk about recurrent UTIs and how to get real results for your patients.

  •           Gender - and how to approach all patients in an inclusive way
  •           The difference between recurrent and relapsing UTI
  •           Evidence-based versus anecdotal risk factors
  •           Labs to order, what to look for (and how to look)
  •           Strategies for management

Adding to the tools in your toolkit will lead to strategies for success, which will make it MUCH easier to work with the frustrated patient with recurrent UTI. Feel confident in your approach and help your patients to break the cycle of recurrent (or relapsing) UTI.
