Background and purpose: Blastocystis hominis is an intestinal protozoan in humans and animals. This survey was conducted to evaluate the knowledge and practice of laboratory experts in Ahvaz city about the Blastocystis hominis parasite.
Research method: This study was conducted on laboratory experts working in Ahvaz city from all levels of education using a questionnaire from January 2019 to June 2019. The data was collected through the distribution of face-to-face questionnaires as well as electronic questionnaires. Pearson's correlation coefficient, chi-square test, descriptive statistics, and spss software were used to evaluate the data.
Findings: Among the 464 participants in this survey, 58.4% believed that Blastocystis hominis may cause abdominal pain, but 12.3% had poor knowledge about hives in people with Blastocystis hominis. Although most participants knew that Blastocystis hominis was an intestinal protozoan, only 47% knew that it was an emerging pathogen. The results showed that the practice of laboratory experts regarding the use of molecular techniques and culture in the diagnosis of Blastocystis hominis was poor. Conclusion: This study shows that laboratory experts had adequate knowledge about Blastocystis hominis, but their practice was lower in the case of Blastocystis hominis. It seems necessary to hold practical workshops on Blastocystis hominis in addition to training based on the latest findings to improve the practice of laboratory experts in this regard.
