Moreover, 82 % were unaffected by patient/parent antibiotic demands. Differences in antimicrobial resistance knowledge and perception and current antimicrobial use were not significant. A significant post-intervention improvement existed in the practical knowledge of proper antimicrobial selection. All participants exhibited basic knowledge of antimicrobial use and the emerging resistance. The practical knowledge improvement through one educational session indicates the need for such programs to minimize antimicrobial resistance.
