    Symposium: Management of urinary tract infection in clinical practice. 15.-16.05.2020

    10.02.2020

    The symposium “Management of UTI in clinical practice: How to achieve the best use of evidence?” will present and discuss methodological challenges and solutions as well as new findings in diagnostics and therapy.

    Uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI) are responsible for a high proportion of antibiotic prescriptions in primary care. In general, the development of treatment approaches to reduce the consumption of antibiotics represents a global challenge. For UTI, different approaches to reduce antibiotic consumption have been tested in randomized controlled trials. 
    The meta-analytical evaluation of these studies represents a promising approach to compare these strategies and to identify predictors of non-antibiotic therapy success.

    The symposium “Management of UTI in clinical practice: How to achieve the best use of evidence?” will present and discuss methodological challenges and solutions as well as new findings in diagnostics and therapy.
    Which strategies are generally promising?
    What are distinct advantages of meta-analyses of individual patient data (IPD)?
    How can an evidence synthesis approach improve decision making? 
    How can meta-analytical methods be effi ciently implemented in practice?
     
    First results from the UTI-IPD project, a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials evaluating strategies to reduce antibiotics in women with uncomplicated UTI will be presented and discussed. Furthermore, study results,
    relevant to general practitioners in the diagnosis and therapy of UTI in women but also in men, in higher ages and in children will be introduced.

    We would like to invite you to discuss these questions and topics with us and are looking forward to your participation in the symposium.
