Medication adherence can improve the health of your patients and save time

From the American Medical Association:

Statistics from a JAMA study indicate that, for every two patients you see, one of them isn’t taking their medicine as prescribed.

Quick tip: Patients may have extenuating reasons for not taking their medications, but if you help them identify and address the root cause of their nonadherence to medications without judgment, you’ll build trust – and you may be able to address medication-related issues faster. Work to create a blame-free environment to discuss medication adherence with your patients.
