RACF Medicinewise Report
Antibiotics for urinary tract infections
RACF Medicinewise Reports can identify patterns of antibiotic use, support appropriate prescribing of antibiotics to treat urinary infections (UTIs) and prevent antibiotic resistance.
NPS MedicineWise has collaborated with Webstercare to design a new report in the Webstercare Medication Management Software. This enables pharmacists to create in-depth reports on the use of antibiotics for urinary tract infections in residential aged care facilities (RACFs).
This RACF MedicineWise Report help RACFs to:
- understand and analyse antibiotic use
- improve resident care in line with evidence-based guidelines
- identify what preventive treatments are being used
- regularly review antibiotic use for UTIs.
In the report are:
- objective measurements to guide appropriate use of antibiotics for UTIs
- quick and easy access to detailed clinical information
- comparison of medicine use at an RACF against comparator data
- lists residents who may benefit from a review of their medicines.
Reports will be available at the beginning of September in the next Webstercare software update, version 15.2.01 of Webstercare's Professional and Professional Plus Medication Management Software.
Ask your pharmacy service provider to produce the RACF MedicineWise Report for your RACF.
