Urinary Tract Infection for Older Adults leaflet

Screenshot of leaflet. Please find contents of full leaflet in document links below

The leaflet can be used either to provide information on UTIs to those at risk or care staff may wish to share this leaflet with older adults in their care and/or their relatives. It has been updated with COVID-specific advice (November 2020). The leaflet may also be used during primary care consultations to facilitate dialogue between a patient and their healthcare professional on specific topics like treatment or safety netting. We would recommend that the leaflet is used as a tool to interact with patients, rather than as a ‘parting gift’.
