Overview

Facilitating Treatment Adherence provides practical clinical guidelines and describes adherence enhancement techniques for health care professionals dealing with noncompliant patients. Meichenbaum and Turk synthesize the vast amount of literature on the subject and formulate specific procedures for improving patient participation, such as anticipating nonadherence, considering the prescribed self-care curative measures from the patient's perspective, improving the patient-doctor relationship, customizing treatment, enlisting family support, and making use of other health care providers. They integrate works from a variety of disciplines, including medicine, social psychology, and behavior modification, to describe the particular ways health care professionals can adapt the techniques presented to meet the needs of their patients. Numerous summary tables and examples of assessment instruments and interviews are included. To remind readers that nonadherence may not be limited to the patient, the authors examine a variety of projected reasons, excuses, and rationalizations readers may give themselves for not following the suggestions offered in this book.
