“Survey: European medical students want more education on antibiotic use”

  11 May 2018

“The cross-sectional web-based survey, developed by the ESCMID Study Group for Antimicrobial Stewardship (ESGAP), sought to assess how prepared final-year medical students felt to prescribe antibiotics according to commonly accepted principles of prudent use, with the intention of providing data to support targeted national and international improvement efforts. The 47-item questionnaire included questions on demographics, self-reported preparedness on 27 curriculum topics on prudent antibiotic use, and perceived need for further education.

A preparedness score was calculated for each student, and mean scores were compared at medical schools and country levels. In addition, comparisons were made with national-level data on resistance among four common bacterial pathogens.”
