Provide care for Julianna, a patient presenting with dysuria (or pain when urinating).
The National Prescribing Curriculum (NPC) is a series of interactive case-based modules that encourage confident and rational prescribing. The modules follow a stepwise approach as outlined in the WHO's Guide to Good Prescribing.
In this module you will provide care for Julianna, a patient presenting with dysuria (or pain when urinating).
- Prescribe an appropriate first-line medicine for treatment of an uncomplicated urinary tract infection.
- Identify effective alternatives if your first-line choice is unsuitable in any particular case.
- Demonstrate awareness of the implications of penicillin hypersensitivity in the choice, or avoidance, of alternative antibiotics.
- Document important information that you would discuss with a patient with an uncomplicated urinary tract infection including non-pharmacological interventions.
