Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the knowledge, compliance and affecting factors of the cough etiquette to prevent the respiratory infectious disease transmission. Data were collected 250 self reporting questionnaires above 19 years old adult from Aug. 13th to Sep. 19th 2018. 213 questionnaires were analyzed statistically. In the results, the score was converted in terms of 100 points, knowledge of the cough etiquette was average $70.99{\pm}19.92$ points, compliance was $70.63{\pm}10.25$ points. Knowledge and compliance were statistically positive significant correlation, In the multiple regression analysis, the affecting factors were gender, usually carry a handkerchief, usually carry a portable tissue paper, average number of handwashes per day, know about cough etiquette, knowledge of cough etiquette. Therefore, it is necessary to develop and apply an educational program that reflects the affecting factors of cough etiquette in this study result. The higher level of cough etiquette performance will help prevent respiratory infection transmission.
