Nursing home providers face challenges in urinary tract infection assessment and treatment, often prescribing unnecessary antibiotics for asymptomatic bacteriuria. The project tested the effectiveness of the multifaceted Cooper Urinary Tract Infection Program that includes the Cooper tool algorithm, didactic education for providers, and change champions. This Program led to significant improvements in nurse knowledge and reduced rates of urinary tract infections, inappropriate antibiotic treatments, and urinalyses. Learn about this important Program: Dr Cooper presents her Program in this video and describes the study in her article.
