ABSTRACT:
Aim: The aim of this study was to assess under graduates and post graduates knowledge about post-exposure prophylaxis for Hepatitis B virus and to compare the results obtained from both the groups. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in December 2015 using a self-structured questionnaire to collect information from Saveetha Dental College and Hospital, Chennai. Results: Knowledge, attitude and practice of post graduates is more followed by interns, final years and third years. Conclusion: Based on the results of this survey, authors concluded that there is lack of knowledge about HBV post-exposure prophylaxis among undergraduates and post graduates. Participation in such workshops must be made mandatory for all dental health care providers.[4]
