Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) Specific Training for Long Term Care Facilities
The Maine CDC has two goals for this training:
- Provide education on reducing UTIs in long term care facilities;
- Understand how over-prescribing antibiotics, which commonly occurs in extended-term facilities, can lead to antibiotic resistance of some bacteria, which increases the potential lethality of bacterial infections.
Target audience: Floor nurses and nurse leaders who work in long-term care.
Training Length: 45 to 60 minutes
