Special Issue "Medication Adherence"
A special issue of Pharmacy (ISSN 2226-4787).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018).
Interests: development and validation of medication adherence interventions
Medication non-adherence is described by the World Health Organisation as a “worldwide problem of striking magnitude”. Adhering to prescribed medication directions is a complex health behaviour potentially presenting numerous challenges to the patient. The research challenges include generating evidence to support practitioners in accurately identifying patients who are non-adherent, determining the reason(s) for the non-adherence and then working with the patient to develop appropriate solution(s).
We invite you to share your research regarding medication adherence, which may be from any point along the process of intervention development ranging from theory and evidence base generation through to feasibility/piloting, evaluation and implementation.Dr. Debi Bhattacharya
