Let's chat about treatment adherence vs. treatment compliance

A vocabulary shift to ‘adherence’ can have a positive impact on adherence itself.

Treatment compliance

Compliance is often used synonymously with adherence, but implies obedience to the practitioner’s plan, without considering a patient’s preferences.

Treatment adherence

Adherence shows empathy for the patient’s views and choices, which creates a shared partnership in their wellbeing and promotes readiness for change.

With a framework in place, start thinking about tactics

Here are five considerations and strategies you can implement today.

01

Cost considerations

Cost is one of the primary barriers to adherence. Use a staged approach to introduce treatments one at a time and set realistic goals in line with financial restrictions.

02

Staged approach

Be clear about which aspect of the health problem to prioritize. Provide multiple options for increased flexibility.

03

Patient education

Educate the patient about treatment options, how they work, their potential side effects, information on the condition, and the importance of adherence.

04

Patient readiness

Try motivational interviewing or other theoretical and evidence-based behavior strategies to communicate a shared value of the patient’s wellbeing.

05

Communication

Offer multiple, preferred points of contact for treatment reminders, like text messages, emails, phone calls, and applications.
