    Management of UTI – assessing the evidence
    Recurrent urinary tract infection (rUTI) is a chronic condition and has a significant impact on health‐related quality of life. The commonly used definition for rUTI is greater than three episodes in a year or more than two in 6 months. There are many different forms of treatment (including conservative and pharmacological) available in the management of rUTI’s that is available both over the counter and on prescription but there are significant variations in treatment recommendations. This session aims to review all the different treatment options available and consider the evidence for their use in practice.
