Beyond antibiotic selection: Concordance with the IDSA guidelines for uncomplicated urinary tract infections - Abstract

The purpose of this report was to evaluate concordance with the most recent guidelines for the treatment of uncomplicated UTI based on antibiotic selection, dosage, frequency, and duration.

A historical review of patients' medical records at a university-based internal medicine clinic was conducted. When aggregated across antibiotic type, frequency, and duration, overall concordance was 33.96 %. Prescribing concordance for uncomplicated UTI in the local region is suboptimal.
