Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a patient educational intervention on the rates of desire for antibiotics for viral upper respiratory infections.  A quasi-experimental design with a convenience sample of patients that was presented to the clinic between August and September 2015 was used.  A questionnaire adapted from a similar study, modified to fit the patient population, was administered as a pretest and posttest.  For the intervention, the participants read a brochure by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that explains the difference between bacteria and viruses, as well as antibiotic resistance.  It also explains when antibiotics are and are not appropriate.  This project supports the claim that educational intervention can help reduce a patient’s desire for antibiotics for viral upper respiratory infections.  Future research should consider if the perception of providers regarding whether a patient is expecting antibiotics influences their prescription of antibiotics.
