Evidence-based methods to enhance medication adherence

The Nurse Practitioner
S D Schaffer, S J Yoon


Medication adherence problems prevent 50% of patients with chronic disorders from receiving the full benefit of prescribed regimens. These problems are consistent regardless of disease, symptom, regimen, or age-group. This article discusses evidence-based recommendations for assessing and improving adherence. The recommendations are categorized into affective, behavioral, and cognitive (ABC) domains. Using ABC strategies, clinicians and patients can work together to improve treatment outcomes.
