Pharmacy UTI trial: Outcomes for 4300 women a mystery

A leaked evaluation report also reveals four patients visited ED after being prescribed antibiotics by pharmacists

The outcomes of more than 4300 women treated by pharmacists in the controversial Queensland UTI prescribing trial are unknown, according to a draft version of the State Government’s own evaluation.

The Australian newspaper said yesterday it had obtained a 126-page evaluation report written by Professor Lisa Nissen from the school of clinical sciences at Queensland University of Technology.
