Urinary tract infections cause a significant burden of infections in our older people and a high rate of hospital admissions. This can be improved by implementing some relatively simple measures.
Please watch BOTH the training animation (entitled ‘To Dip of Not to Dip’, YouTube video) AND training presentation below (total time 30 minutes).
It is helpful to download the UTI infection assessment tool and the Hydration Risk Assessment Tool from the ‘Resources for staff’ section below as both the video and training presentation will guide you through scenarios on how to complete the assessments.
Please also remember to complete the surveys (links below). The pre-session survey to record your attendance (setting and numbers attending only) and knowledge prior to training and the post-session survey to test your knowledge following the training and to access a certificate of attendance.
To access the surveys as mentioned in the training above, click the following:
