Overview In the US, urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for 6 million visits to a healthcare provider and approximately 20% of those are seen in the emergency department. Women are 30 times more likely than men to develop a UTI and, it is estimated 20%-40% of women who have had one UTI will experience another one. This case-based continuing education module is geared toward the NP student or career starter but can also be a beneficial refresher for the seasoned NP in practice. This activity features Dr. Margaret Fitzgerald, a Family Nurse Practitioner with vast expertise in NP certification preparation and continuing education. Dr. Fitzgerald's presentation will provide evidence-based education that leads you through a case from presentation of symptoms through diagnosis & treatment.
