Inappropriate supply of antibiotics for common viral infections by community pharmacies in Vietnam: A standardised patient survey
Standardised patient surveys were conducted in randomly selected community pharmacies across 40 districts in Vietnam. Four clinical scenarios were represented by patient actors: (a) an adult requesting treatment for a sibling with a viral upper respiratory tract infection (URTI), (b) a parent requesting treatment for a child with acute diarrhoea, (c) an adult making a direct antibiotic request, and (d) an adult presenting with an antibiotic prescription. We calculated the proportion of interactions that resulted in inappropriate supply of antibiotics and patient advice. Predictors of inappropriate antibiotic supply were assessed.
