ABSTRACT

Objectives: Assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of pharmacy assistance against the spread of over counter antibiotics in Jordan. Methods: A online cross-sectional questionnaire was performed during December 2021 using a standard, reliable and experimental survey. A random selection method was used for 110 pharmacy assistance in King Hussein Medical Hospital, who completed a 28-point survey in English. Results: Out of 110 nearby pharmacy assistance, 100 questionnaires were completed. More than half (92%) of them were unaware that DAwP is not right way.
