Reports and Presentations

    Los Angeles Health Survey: Adult's knowledge, attitudes and practices in antibiotic use: This report presents data from the 2002-2003 Los Angeles County Health Survey on adultís antibiotic knowledge and use practices. Key findings include the following: [1] Nearly half (46%) of adults reported that they call their doctor for antibiotics when they have the cold or the flu; [2] Nearly half (47%) of adults reported that they do not take their antibiotics until they are gone and; [3] 28% of adults reported that they obtain antibiotics from friends and family members. Findings provide important baseline data to support the need for educational outreach efforts in Los Angeles County. The data also provide the opportunity to analyze long-term secular trends across a variety of variables (i.e., race, education level and health insurance status) with future surveys.
