ABSTRACT:
Adherence to therapies is a primary determinant of treatment. Quality health care outcomes depend upon patient’s adherence to recommended treatment regimens. Failure to adherence is a serious problem which not only affects the patient but also the health care system. Medication non-adherence in patient leads to substantial worsening of disease, increased health care costs and death. More than 40% of patient’s significant risks by misunderstanding, forgetting or ignoring health care advice. A variety of factors are likely to affect adherence. Barriers to adherence could be patient, provider and health system factors. Adherence is a multidimensional phenomenon determined by interaction of five sets of factors i.e Socio-economic, Health care/ system related, Disease/condition related, Therapy related, Patient related. Health care professionals such as physicians, pharmacists and nurses have significant role in their daily practice to improve patient medication adherence.
