Title:
Parents' Knowledge and Behaviors Related to the Use of Over-The-Counter Cough and Cold Medications
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Title: Parents' Knowledge and Behaviors Related to the Use of Over-The-Counter Cough and Cold Medications Purpose: The purpose of this clinical inquiry is to evaluate the relationship between parental knowledge and behaviors related to the use of OTC cough and cold medications in young children.  A secondary goal is to evaluate the effectiveness of the Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing Cold Treatment Survey created for this study.  Methods: The TWU CTS is a 17-question anonymous, self-administered survey.  A convenience sample of parents attending a rural pediatric clinic will be enrolled.  Significance has been set at 0.05, with a power of 0.80, and effect size of .30.  This study will use a sample size of 100 participants.  Results:  The results indicated no difference between parents of younger children (< 24 months) and parents of older children (25 months to 12 years old) in their knowledge and behavior related to the use of OTC cough and cold medications in their children.  Investigation of the data identified trends related to knowledge deficits that need to be addressed in both parent groups.  This clinical inquiry inspired the development of a tool designed to collect data related to parental knowledge and behavior where none existed previously.  Conclusion: The knowledge gained from this study allowed for the identification of parental knowledge deficits related to the use of OTC cough and cold medications, as well as harmful behaviors related to the treatment of cough and cold symptoms in children.
