ABSTRACT

The increasing rate of Covid-19 in the Philippines resulted in online health media reporting consumption. It helps the public disseminate the latest updates and information regarding the current health system situation. It also shapes the perception of users, especially students. Students from allied health programs must be literate and knowledgeable enough to analyze data from these platforms since reporters can publicize health information freely, whether the content is credible or not. CEU Manila is known to produce high-quality allied health students. Therefore, confidence level must be established in terms of the factuality of information, reliability of reports, and utilization of information. This study aims to determine the confidence level of selected allied health students in CEU Manila on online health media reporting amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Descriptive-quantitative as the research design, a self-made online survey was distributed to a sample of 125 using stratified sampling and simple random sampling. Chi-squared test highlighted the reliability (0.0001) of reports as the indicator significantly associated with students' confidence level. However, some components of both factuality of information and utilization of information do not show significant association. It is recommended to analyze students' confidence levels outside allied health programs to determine the difference and provide a significant relationship between the two predictors. Thus, the students must also be aware of how they use online health media reporting, especially during a pandemic, to avoid misinterpretation, misuse of information, and inaccurate data utilization. This will help students to deliver evidence-based outcome goals in the future.
