Welcome to the NIH Adherence Network Distinguished Speaker Series

Measuring Adherence: Common Pitfalls and Recommendations

Kristin A. Riekert, PhD

Associate Professor

Co-Director, Johns Hopkins Adherence Research Center Johns Hopkins School of Medicine

May 5, 2014 12:00-1:00 PM ET:

The accurate measurement of adherence is critical for understanding the efficacy of new treatments and the association between patient behavior and health outcomes. Clinically, adherence information can be used to identify at-risk patients as well as a component of interventions either to identify doses most like to be missed or to reinforce positive changes in health behaviors. There are many approaches to measuring adherence, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. This presentation will discuss the pros and cons of each approach using illustrations from current research from various chronic illnesses. Greater attention will be given to objective monitoring strategies, which are becoming increasing more feasible with advances in technology. Challenges and recommendations for managing the large databases created by electronic monitoring will be discussed. Finally, strategies for using electronic monitoring in clinical care will be presented.
