dc.description.abstractThis article critically analyses the prevalence, assessment and management of urinary tract infections (UTIs) in patients over the age of 65, in an urgent care out-of-hours service in order to enhance care. It is undertaken from the perspective of working as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP). A synopsis of UTI is presented, examining the epidemiology and aetiology. The process of assessment, diagnosis and management of UTI in older people is appraised based on current evidence. Difficulties associated with the recognition of UTI in elderly are evaluated. Finally, recommendations are made for the improvement of future practice as an ANP.en_US
