Complimentary urinary tract infection training available for South Australian pharmacists

From 1 March 2024, following amendments to the SA Controlled Substances (Poisons) Regulations 2011, the South Australian Community Pharmacy Urinary Tract Infection Services Scheme will be enabled. This will mean that trained community pharmacists are able to provide advice and treatment (including specified antibiotics, as appropriate) for eligible women aged from 18 to 65 years, with uncomplicated UTIs, as assessed by a community pharmacist.

To support this advancement in community pharmacists’ scope of practice and women’s health, the Australasian College of Pharmacy (College) is offering South Australian community pharmacists CPD-accredited training for uncomplicated cystitis treatment.

Further details on the conditions for pharmacists wishing to offer SA Community Pharmacy UTI Services, and eligibility criteria for consumers are available at: SA Community Pharmacy Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Services I SA Health.

The College encourages all pharmacists in South Australia to undertake this complimentary training, accessed via the College website, as soon as practical to support the delivery of this important health service.
