Review of Adherence Intervention Studies and Recommendations for Research and Clinical Practice

Part of the Clinical Child Psychology Library book series (CCPL)


In spite of over three decades of research on the prevalence, correlates, and consequences of medical nonadherence, relatively few studies have sought to validate interventions for improving adherence. There have been negligible efforts to test interventions and demonstrate that improved adherence actually produces clinical and QOL benefits for patients and their families. This volume will conclude with a review of the limited literature on improving adherence to regimens for acute and chronic pediatric diseases and suggestions about how to improve future research and clinical practice.
