So, who’s to blame for the continued overprescribing of antibiotics? Doctors? Patients?

Both, according to a recent study published in the journal Medical Decision Making. The study surveyed 149 clinicians (including doctors, nurses and physician assistants), 225 patients at two large urban hospitals and 519 other adults through a national online website (Amazon’s Mechanical Turk platform) about their knowledge and expectations regarding antibiotics. All participants lived in the United States.
