Special Issue "Patient Adherence"
A special issue of Pharmacy (ISSN 2226-4787).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Interests: medication management; chronic disease management; health literacy; patient–doctor communications and health services research
Adherence to medications and treatment recommendations is among the most effective ways of improving health outcomes. Yet, poor patient adherence is common, especially among people living with chronic illness. We invite you to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue which focuses on “Patient Adherence”. We welcome research which examines the assessment, prevalence and determinants of adherence, the consequences of poor adherence, and strategies which can be used to address intentional and/or unintentional poor adherence. We seek manuscripts of all types, including reviews, original research, short reports, case studies, and commentaries, and will also consider manuscripts which focus on adherence with other treatment modalities (e.g., dietary or exercise recommendations).
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
