Peer education (PE) may help improve knowledge and appropriate use of antibiotics in young adults. In this feasibility study, health care students were trained to educate 16–18-year-old biology students, who then educated their non-biology peers using e-Bug antibiotic lessons. Biology students had the knowledge and enthusiasm to deliver antibiotic lessons but need sufficient training to educate peers, which should be supervised by teachers. Although under-powered, the findings indicate improved knowledge scores after PE. SMS text messaging is a more feasible and valid approach to collecting antibiotic use data than GP note searching. To maximize school interest, PE should avoid student exam times. Single-tier peer education by university healthcare students to 16–18-year-old students may be more feasible than two-tier peer education using both university and student educators. View this paper
