Medical Adherence in Pediatric Populations

Adherence to medication or medical regimes is considered the major factor in obtaining a successful outcome of therapy. In order to adequately assess the effectiveness of a medical intervention, it is necessary to obtain adherence to the prescribed regime. Nonadherence to a prescribed treatment can lead to increased patient visits, emergency care, and over prescribing of medications. Nonadherence may eventually result in a failure to obtain a therapeutic outcome (Becker & Green, 1975), including progression of the disease (Stewart & Cluff, 1977), recurrent infections (Daschner & Marget, 1975), and emergence of resistant infections (Rapoff & Christopherson, 1982).
