Patients are central to the whole process of medicines management. Medication review may optimise the choice of treatment with respect to clinical outcomes and side-effect profiles, but this will not reap benefits in terms of improved health unless the patient is in agreement with the proposed therapeutic strategy, and takes the chosen medicines as agreed, while adopting appropriate lifestyle changes.

This course explores the origins of the concept of adherence and the influences that affect a patient’s health beliefs. The principles and factors that underpin a patient’s decision on whether or not to take a medication mutually agreed between a prescriber and patient as necessary can be factored into your future consultations with your patients, and help assure that adherence is achieved.
