Posted on: June 25th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), in partnership with Public Health England, NHS England and NHS Improvement, Care Quality Commission and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, has added a new session to the Antimicrobial Resistance and Infections elearning programme.
Antimicrobial Prescribing for Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) provides a quick overview on the key points for clinicians to consider when prescribing antibiotics for UTIs, as outlined in the NICE guidance on managing common infections.
The bite-sized session also covers:

  • why the management of specific infections matter
  • what you need to know as a clinician
  • what you can do in your clinical practice
  • where can you find more information

This bite-sized session is accompanied by an assessment and learners have the flexibility of assessing their knowledge before and/or after engaging with the session.
Antibiotic (antimicrobial) resistance poses a major threat to everyday life where lives could be lost as a result of antibiotics not working as they should. All health and care staff have an important role in preserving the power of antibiotics and in controlling and preventing the spread of infections. The Antimicrobial Resistance and Infections programme supports both clinical and non-clinical staff to understand these threats and tackle them with adequate infection prevention and control practices, good antimicrobial stewardship and the use of diagnostics.
