Abstract :

Context: Typical adherence rates for prescribed medications are about 50% with a range of 0% to more than 100%. Non medication adherence is a phenomenon which is quite complex and hard to evaluate, but certainly leads to significant medical and economic consequences. Data Sources: A search of MEDLINE, CINAHL, PSYCHLIT, SOCIOFILE, IPA, EMBASE, The Cochrane Library databases, and bibliographies. Data Synthesis: There are two types of non medication adherence: Intentional (motivation, convictions and perception barrier) Unintentional (aptitude, possibility and practice barrier) Improving medication adherence requires a radical change in patient?s behavior. That ́s why it is necessary to know the different stages of behavior change (the stages of change - Prochaska model). Conclusions: Patient education enables better medical adherence provided that it includes: ? Improving patient?s knowledge of the disease and the medical prescription ? Patient?s representations ? Health beliefs ? Use psycho pedagogical means so as to motivate the patients and assist them to cope with their disease as well as help them change their behavior
