Parents’ Expectations and Experiences of Antibiotics for Acute Respiratory Infections in Primary Care

Recent study in Australia discusses how parents of children aged 1 to 12 years have misperceptions about antibiotic use for acute respiratory infections. The study explores parents’ beliefs about antibiotic necessity and also quantifies their expectations of antibiotic benefit. It highlights that there is a clear need for improved communication during visits such as sharing decision making to address overoptimistic expectations of antibiotics. Interesting reading on how parental demands often impact antibiotic prescription!
