Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections in Care Settings
Upon completion of this course, learners will develop an understanding of what UTIs are, their main causes, and some of the main ways that UTIs can be treated and prevented.
A urinary tract infection occurs when one or more parts of the urinary system become infected with a pathogen. This can be caused from a lack of poor personal and hand hygiene, poor catheter care, an inadequate fluid intake, and conditions that may cause incomplete bladder emptying.
Why take this course?
Upon completion of this online course, learners will understand what a UTI is, how pathogens can enter the urinary tract and cause infection, the effect that diabetes has on a UTI, and how to test for the presence of UTIs. Learners will understand the detection process from observing signs and symptoms, to notifying a senior or a GP.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
