LISBOA-NAVARRO, Raúl et al. Knowledge and practices regarding cystic echinococcosis and trichinellosis in users and companions of users of the Hospital Comunitario de Salud Familiar El Carmen, Biobio Region, Chile. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.4, pp.474-476. ISSN 0716-1018.

We surveyed users of the Hospital Comunitario de Salud Familiar El Carmen and their companions to analyze knowledge and practices regarding cystic echinococcosis and trichinellosis. Most people recognized risky practices. Previous attendance at talks and working in agricultural-livestock enhanced the knowledge. Age, sex and formal education were not associated with the knowledge. Knowledge was not associated with practices.

Keywords : Zoonosis; prevention; transmission; Trichinella; Echinococcus; Zoonosis; prevención; transmisión; Trichinella; Echinococcus.
