1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Despite numerous causes, a change in mental state of a nursing home resident is often attributed a urinary tract infection (UTI). This project aims to quantify the prevalence of treated UTI, its non-specific symptoms and factors leading to treatment, in nursing home residents in tropical Australia.
