This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of urinary tract infections (UTIs), including a description of the causative pathogens associated with UTIs and how they manifest. It will also describe how UTIs are diagnosed and treated, delving into the use of antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance.
In this webinar, Dr. Jeffrey Henderson, Washington University School of Medicine, and Lisa Ritenour, University of Akron, will explore the complexity of UTIs from the routine to the more unique and complicated cases.
