Compliance and Persistence With Medication Therapy

Compliance and Persistence With Medication Therapy

Patients' failure to adhere to medication regimens is a major problem. The factors that beget nonadherence are complex and interwoven. Patients' ability to understand their treatment routines or the reasons for them, side effects, financial barriers, simple forgetfulness — or any combination of these and myriad other determinants — can influence adherence to therapy. Removing barriers to adherence ultimately improves the potential for positive clinical and financial outcomes.
