Consequences of Nonadherence and Correlates of Adherence

Part of the Issues in Clinical Child Psychology book series (ICCP)


Adherence failures can be costly from a patient’s, economic, clinical, and research perspectives. In order to target those patients and families who may need assistance with enhancing their adherence, we need to identify factors which predict adherence. The purpose of this chapter is to review the consequences of nonadherence and studies which have examined predictors of adherence.
