Purpose: Urinary tract infections are a common outpatient infection, and proper antibiotic treatment is important for better patient outcomes, reducing healthcare costs, and reducing bacterial resistance. Specifically at the Center for Family Medicine (CFM), resident physicians may lack experience in prescribing proper antibiotic treatments based on patient factors for UTIs. The purpose of this study is to assess the appropriate use of antibiotics before and after a provider education pertaining to guideline recommended therapy for UTIs. The education included classifications of UTIs, first line and second line antibiotic therapy for acute uncomplicated UTIs, and first line therapy based on renal function or pregnancy status. The primary endpoint was a composite outcome of appropriate antibiotic therapy defined as the right drug, duration, diagnosis, and dose. The secondary endpoints were the individual components of the composite primary outcome.
