Abstract

This study aims to identify the level of knowledge and attitude of non-allied health college students in a tertiary level institution regarding antimicrobial resistance, associate the level of knowledge and attitude with sociodemographic factors (age, sex, college, religion, and family income), and to look if there is a relationship between the level of knowledge and the level of attitude of the respondents on antimicrobial resistance. The quantitative cross-sectional research design was used for the methodology and adapted its questionnaire while applying modifications to fit the study better. The researchers sampled 207 respondents from various colleges around the institution. The results showed that most respondents are from ages 21-23 years old, female, belong to the STEM strand, are Catholic, and have an annual income of 60,000-249,999 pesos. Based on the results, the respondents generally have a poor level of knowledge while exhibiting a good level of attitude toward antimicrobial resistance. There is an association between the level of knowledge with the family income, and there is an association with the level of attitude with the factors such as college, religion, and family income. Lastly, there is a significant relationship between the level of knowledge and the level of attitude of the respondents.
