Synopsis: Poor adherence is ubiquitous in dermatology. Doctors prescribe medications, but patients don t always use them. While it is easy to blame non-adherent patients for treatment failures, there is much doctors can do to get our patients to use their medications better. We may even be able to do far better by encouraging patients to use the treatments we have to day than we could by developing new medications. In this book, established adherence researcher Steven R. Feldman examines the problem of adherence and provides practical tools for improving patients adherence behavior.
Practical Ways to Improve Patients Treatment Outcomes is an excellent resource book for physicians and allied health professionals whose patients have less than ideal treatment adherence. Feldman offers concrete ways to get patients to use their medications, see that they are effective and improve the outcomes of treatment.
