It has been generally acknowledged for years that non-adherence rates for chronic illness regimens and for lifestyle changes are ∼ 50%.
The problem of non-adherence to medical treatment remains a challenge for the medical professions and social scientists. Their efforts to explain and improve patient adherence often appear to be ineffective. Although successful adherence interventions do exist, half of interventions seem to fail and adherence theories lack sufficient explaining power. As a result of the widespread problem of adherence, substantial numbers of patients do not get the maximum benefit of medical treatment, resulting in poor health outcomes, lower quality of life and increased health care costs. In spite of many advances made in adherence research, non-adherence rates have remained nearly unchanged in the last decades.
The event focuses on how the healthcare industry can deliver considerable improvements in patient adherence. Put simply, how can we help patients take the correct dosages at the correct times?
The Patient Adherence Congress is a forum for bringing together the experts and innovation needed to help move the issue forward in the Gulf region. You are encouraged and welcome to join us in Abu Dhabi where we have an important opportunity to make a difference. We hope you join us!
