University Students’ Antibiotic Use and Knowledge of Antimicrobial Resistance: What Are the Common Myths?

  22 June 2020

We aimed to assess antibiotic usage and knowledge regarding antibiotics and antimicrobialresistance (AMR) among undergraduate students of the Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), public university located in Brunei Darussalam. A cross‐sectional study was performed using a self‐administered questionnaire. The questionnaire was adapted from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Antibiotic resistance: Multi‐country public awareness” survey distributed online. Students at the UBD were invited to participate in the online survey through internal email.
The questionnaire consisted of five sections: demographic information, antibiotic usage, knowledge on antibiotics, antibiotic resistance (AMR), and use of antibiotics in agriculture. The data were analyzed descriptively and appropriate inferential statistics were used accordingly. A total of 130
students returned a completed questionnaire
