, , , ,

Abstract

Biofilms have a negative impact on the health of the patients, it is one of the global health concerns that need to be nullified to enhance and improve the health outcome. The knowledge and awareness of biofilms among pharmacy students is very essential. Hence this study aimed to assess the overall knowledge and awareness regarding biofilms among pharmacy/Phar.D. students in multiple universities in Jordan. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in the period between February 1st, 2022, and April 1st, 2022, to assess and evaluate knowledge about biofilms among undergraduate pharmacy/Phar.D. students in Jordanian universities, this was performed by sampling respondents from pharmacy schools in both public and private universities. An online questionnaire-based survey was used to collect the data which were then statistically analyzed using SPSS software. A total of 1,058 undergraduate pharmacy/Phar.D. students are enrolled in this study. Nearly all the students were in their 3rdand 4thyear of study. A high number of participating students (80.7%) have previously been enrolled in or are currently receiving an academic course in pharmaceutical microbiology and around half (48.0%) have been enrolled in or are currently receiving a related course. The study found a significant lack of information in the enrolled students regarding the specifics of biofilms, creating a better understanding of the information needed to be supplemented to raise students’ knowledge and avoid common misconceptions.
