About this Course

Specific considerations for paediatric urinary tract infection management differ from UTI management in adults.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a common consult in the community, and are one of the most common infections in children, although prevalence varies with age.

By the end of this course, you should have a better understanding of:

  • A recommended management pathway for UTI consults for children in the community.
  • The context around laboratory investigations and results.
  • When to refer and how to manage recurrent UTIs in children.
