Description - Promoting Adherence to Medical Treatment in Chronic Childhood Illness by Dennis Drotar

This text is based on a conference that brought together experts in the field of adherence to treatment in paediatric chronic illness from the fields of anthropology, paediatrics, psychology and sociology. Their purpose was to present data and conceptual models of adherence to treatment in childhood chronic illness and discuss the implications of their work for new directions in the field. The work presented in the volume includes: conceptual models that have been used to define adherence to treatment and conduct research and clinical care on this topic; the influences on treatment adherence to chronic illness in children; the impact of adherence to treatment on children's health and psychological development; strategies of interventions to promote adherence and reduce rates of non-compliance among children and adolescents with chronic health conditions; methodological and measurement problems in the assessment of treatment adherence; and recommendations to advance scientific knowledge concerning the measurement of adherence, interventions to promote adherence to treatment in paediatric chronic illness, and training providers to promote adherence.
