NICE have published the latest addition to the growing suite of resources on antibiotic prescribing for common infections: a guide to treating catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).
The guideline includes recommendations on:
- advice when an antibiotic prescription is given
- referral and seeking specialist advice
- choice of antibiotic
Like other NICE Antibiotic Use Guidelines, the CAUTI guide is supported by a short visual summary of the recommendations with tables to support prescribing decisions.
