Needs Statement

Acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common condition that often results in the initiation of antibacterial therapy. UTI is a leading cause of inappropriate antimicrobial prescriptions, frequently leading to both direct antimicrobial adverse events and secondary complications, including antimicrobial resistance. The incidence of UTI in women is 12% annually, with 50% of women reporting to have had a UTI by 32 years of age. Lack of access to a primary care provider is an issue that many Kentuckians face, especially in more rural areas of the state. Kentucky pharmacists are one of the most accessible health care professionals (they is a pharmacy located in 119/120 Kentucky counties) who are well positioned to take on a larger role in the
management of UTI. The Kentucky Board of Pharmacy Protocol for Acute, Uncomplicated Treatment of Urinary Tract Infections affords Kentucky pharmacists the opportunity to 1) increase access to care and 2) decrease inappropriate antimicrobial prescribing by following IDSA treatment guidelines.

Per Kentucky Board of Pharmacy regulation 201 KAR 2:380 Board authorized protocols, pharmacists must receive ACPE education and training on the content of the protocol to be able to provide
protocol testing and treatment services.
