Certain Parents Less Likely to Follow Doctors' Advice: Poll
Date:3/25/2013

DS) is associated with putting infants to sleep on their stomachs.

"Even more concerning is that certain populations -- poorer families, non-white families -- were more likely to report following advice only occasionally. The children in these populations are known to have higher rates of health problems such as obesity, SIDS and tooth decay," Clark said.

Parents' ratings of the quality of care received by their children is closely linked to whether they follow their doctor's advice, the researchers found. For instance, among parents who rate their child's doctor as good/fair/poor, 46 percent follow the doctor's advice only occasionally.

"This poll suggests that parents need to ask for clarification if they are unsure about what the provider is saying, or why it's important. Providers should work on using clear language, asking parents about their concerns, and giving practical examples of what works with children of different ages," Dr. Matthew Davis, director of the poll, said in the news release.
