ACOSTA-OVANDO, Claudia Elizabeth et al. Knowledge and practice of the regulation of the simple archived prescription for systemic use antibiotics in dentists of Asunción and Gran Asunción in 2019. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.1, pp.5-13. ISSN 1812-9528.

The uncontrolled use of antibiotics favored the development of bacterial resistance that has increased considerably in the last years and has become one of the greatest threats to public health. This is the reason why the Ministry of Public Health and Social Welfare (MSPyBS) issued the Resolution SG No. 576/18, which stipulates the mandatory sale of drugs that have systemic antibiotic activity under a simple archived prescription. The aim of this study was to measure the level of knowledge and practice on the regulation of the simple archived prescription for systemic antibiotics of dentists in Asunción and Gran Asunción. The study design was descriptive, cross-sectional and 190 dentists participated. The results showed that 77.89% of dentists knew about Resolution S.G. No. 576/18 of the MSPyBS, and 94.21% replied that they knew what information to include in the simple archived prescription. Only 11.28% correctly included all the required data. It was also observed that amoxicillin was the most prescribed antibiotic by dentists (79.47%). In conclusion, it was observed that only 40.0% of the professionals surveyed had a sufficient level of knowledge, while 60.52% had an adequate level of practice.
