Urinary Tract Infection

This course gives an update in the field of urinary tract infection, with hands-on and applicable recommendations from Europe’s top experts. The 1st ESUN Course on Urinary Tract Infection was organised by the European School of Urology Nurses (ESUN) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in May 2015.

The course is organised for experienced practising nurse specialists who treat patients with urinary tract infections and teaches other health care professionals to treat them. This course combines all the best features of an educational event – interaction, group work, latest updates and established evidence-based recommendations. We have invited renowned experts in the field, from a theoretical and practical point of view. They will be working with the course participants sharing today’s must-know information and leading the discussion on the most relevant clinical issues.
