Record type: Article


Study question: What are the costs and cost effectiveness of different management strategies for urinary tract infection in women as shown by the results from a randomised controlled trial?

Summary answer: Dipstick testing with targeted antibiotics is likely to be cost effective if the value of saving a day of moderately bad symptoms is valued at £10 or more, but caution is required given the uncertainty surrounding the estimates.

What is known and what this paper adds: There is limited information on the economic implications of common management strategies for urinary tract infections in primary care. This paper provides estimates of the costs and effectiveness of commonly used strategies.
