Which Interventions Are Useful?
Many interventions have been tested to improve medication adherence. Interventions can vary from simple pillboxes or blister packs to complex interventions with considerable involvement of health care providers and/or technology. This chapter provides some suggestions for intervention approaches. Both providers and researchers must also keep in mind, however, that adherence interventions are not universally effective for all patients or populations. When seeking to improve adherence, the best results are likely going to be achieved by tailoring approaches to the situations and needs of individual patients.
