The advent of reliable means to measure medication adherence have brought patient nonadherence into clear view. Poor adherence to chronic-use drugs is a long-neglected worldwide problem of striking magnitude that occurs in 3 different forms: (a) non-initiation of dosing; (b) episodic omissions of single or sequential doses; (c) short persistence.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
