The selection used randomized and non-randomized controlled designs and the comparisons excluded treatment controls, which made the output highly reliable. The main outcomes from where data was sought were; the use of antibiotics, parental knowledge on their use and parental knowledge in regard to consultations while the secondary outcomes were the finances spent on interventions and the adverse effects to the health of the users of the RTIs. The authors were thorough in abstracting data and assessing the quality of the findings using a third party to verify disagreements and sometimes sourcing additional information from study authors. Studies of interventions that influenced parental consulting found that they do add to the knowledge parents have on RTIs and it was more effective to provide interventions before a child became ill. Only parents with a college education were able to reduce the inappropriate use of antibiotics especially when the symptoms were specified, although the rate of the antibiotics prescribed did not change in the preceding… [END OF PREVIEW]
