About The Study

Stage 3 of POETIC is a randomised controlled trial, the aim of which is to quantify the effects of an “optimised point of care test (Flexicult™ POCT) guided diagnostic and treatment regime” for uncomplicated UTI on the overall appropriateness of antibiotic prescribing when compared to a “practice based on best available local guidelines” strategy.

Rationalising antibiotic prescribing in primary care can make an important contribution to reducing antimicrobial resistance together with improving care of patients presenting with symptomatic UTI and enable patients to get the most appropriate treatment sooner.
