- Why should one care about medication adherence?
- What are the barriers to medication adherence?
- What affects adherence?
- What is the difference between medical adherence and medical compliance?
In today's hectic world, almost every person is suffering from some disease, like asthma or diabetes. People with these common conditions take their medicine as directed only 50- 60% of the time. It is likely you or someone you know has one of these conditions and is struggling to take the medicine as directed- and this can have serious health consequences. Sometimes, it can be even worse and can cost a life.
Lifestyle obstacles, patient incompatibility, forgetting to take medicine, and nonexpert counsel were all identified as barriers to medication adherence. These ideas are always present in the disease process, and they make it more difficult for patients to live a regular life and take their medication.
Adherence is a multifaceted issue that is influenced by a variety of circumstances. The factors can be roughly divided into the following five dimensions: Social and economic, health care system, health condition, therapy and patient.
Medication adherence is defined as "the act of filling new prescriptions or refilling prescriptions on time," whereas medical compliance "the act of taking medication on schedule or as prescribed."
