UTI IN THE MICROBIOME ERA

Symposia

  • Date:
  • Time: 7:30am - 8:30am
  • Track: Clinical Practice

Moderator: Kathleen Drago, MD
This symposium will highlight the latest clinical research in "UTI" / asymptomatic bacteriuria diagnosis & treatment, how it is reflected in the latest clinical guidelines and establish a call to action in adopting this information into clinical practice.  Learning Objectives: (1) incorporate the latest clinical research and professional society guidelines on "UTI" and asymptomatic bacteriuria into their existing “when to test, when to treat” framework; (2) describe the female urinary microbiome and its relationship to "UTI" and asymptomatic bacteriuria in older women; and (3) incorporate knowledge of the urinary microbiome to improve usual care for "UTI" and asymptomatic bacteriuria.
