Enhancing assessment of patient-reported medicaton adherence is a crucial issue for routine clinical care. Dr. Crane and colleagues implemented a clinical assessment of patient reported outcomes (PROs) including adherence and adherence barriers in a number of HIV clinics across the US, with ~21,000 assessments completed to date as part of clinical care visits. The purpose of this presentation is to review reasons why clinical care settings might benefit from initiation of patient reported outcomes such as adherence, address feasibility and practical barriers to implementation based on our experience with integration into HIV settings, address adherence content and measurement issues across disease populations, and finally to discuss the impact of adherence and other PRO collection on clinical care and clinical research.
