Abstract

Antibiotic knowledge and shared decision-making could help prevent antibiotic resistant. This cross-sectional study evaluates the knowledge of antibiotic use and preference to participate in shared decision-making (SDM) process among students in urban areas. A survey comprising the Krantz Health Opinion Survey (KHOS) and knowledge of antibiotic use was distributed to 394 students. Based on KHOS scores, there was no difference in SDM preference between the upper (n = 288) (aged 16-18 years) and lower (n = 106) (aged 13-15 years) form students. The upper form students (n = 288) had a higher knowledge score (p <0.001) compared to the lower form students (n = 106). There was a significant positive correlation between antibiotic knowledge and KHOS scores (KHOS-I; r = 0.210, p <0.001, KHOS-B: r = 0.121, p <0.05) among upper form students (n = 288). Students with a higher knowledge score preferred a more active SDM role. Therefore, antibiotic knowledge may play a crucial role in improving compliance through SDM participation among school children.
