Studies in the literature have highlighted factors that impact patient adherence to acute and chronic therapy, across several disease states. However, there are many gaps in the area of factors that impact adherence and persistence, specifically:a) in acute and chronic diseases in children; and b) how factors may change with time, and with the inclusion of other confounders such as increased medication numbers, comorbidities, ageing etc
This research study aims to investigate the factors that impact patient adherence and persistence to acute and or chronic therapy, taking into account the multifactorial model of adherence. Projects are available in either diseases in children or adults, in chronic areas such as arthritis and mental health.
