From: Predictors of antibiotic prescriptions: a knowledge, attitude and practice survey among physicians in tertiary hospitals in Nigeria

Scores Knowledge score-r (p value) Attitude score-r (p value) Practice score-r (p value) Prescription score-r (p value)
Knowledge score 1 0.360 (< 0.0001) 0.191 (< 0.0001) − 0.074 (0.008)
Attitude score 0.360 (< 0.0001) 1 0.296 (< 0.0001) − 0.217 (< 0.0001)
Practice score 0.191 (> 0.0001) 0.296 (< 0.0001) 1 − 0.192 (< 0.0001)
Prescription score − 0.074 (0.008) − 0.217 (< 0.0001) − 0.192 (< 0.0001) 1
  1. NB: there were weak positive correlations between knowledge, attitude and practice scores and weak negative correlations between when prescription scores where compared with knowledge, attitude, and practice scores
