METHODS OF MEASURING MEDICATION USE/COMPLIANCE IN THE COMMUNITY DWELLING POPULATION OF OLDER PEOPLE

Clinical Response

For many medications, a patient’s clinical response to a medication is only weakly related to compliance. In addition, while some studies suggest that the absence of predictable adverse side effects is correlated to noncompliance, the link between compliance and adverse effects has not been consistent in the literature (APhA, 2003). The APhA therefore concludes that clinical response generally is not a good measure of compliance.
