Opportunities to optimize use of antibiotics in pediatric practice have focused on targeted interventions in acute respiratory infections.
Practice based strategies to improve unnecessary or inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in pediatric urinary tract infection (UTI) are also necessary. Practitioners should develop a process in their practice to appropriately identify those with clinical features of UTI, to optimize specimen collection, to appropriately interpret urinalysis results and to target the initial antibiotic therapy.
Listen in as Mary Anne Jackson, MD explains that pitfalls that may result in injudicious testing and antibiotic use in the child with suspected UTI will be discussed and specific practice based interventions to improve outcomes will be reviewed.
