Impact of antibiotic treatment duration on outcomes in older men with suspected urinary tract infection: retrospective cohort study

Abstract:

Purpose

Clinical guidelines recommend at least 7 days of antibiotic treatment for older men with urinary tract infection (UTI). There may be potential benefits for patients, health services, and antimicrobial stewardship if shorter antibiotic treatment resulted in similar outcomes. We aimed to determine if treatment duration could be reduced by estimating risk of adverse outcomes according to different prescription durations.
