CORTES, Jorge Alberto et al. Clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of community-acquired uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women. [online]. 2015, vol.63, n.4, pp.565-581. ISSN 0120-0011.

Using a process of adaptation, guidelines for the diagnosis, treament and prevention of urinary tract infection in premenopausal non-pregnant women were chosen and assessed. Three high quality guidelines were identified. Based on the evidence that supported these guidelines and their recommendations, a consensus was made to do recommendations for healthcare workers (physicians, laboratory personnel and nurses) on the diagnosis of urinary tract infections (cystitis and pyelonephritis), their treatment and the prevention of recurrence.

Keywords : Urinary tract infections; Practice Guidelines as Topic; Cystitis; Pyelonephritis; Cystitis/Therapy; Pyelonephritis/Therapy.
