Pharmacist opportunities to support medication adherence
Pharmacists have at their disposal many practical opportunities to support patients in corresponding with recommendations from a health care provider. It is important that pharmacists verify whether a patient knows their medication and how to take it. If any difficulties arise, it is a good idea to talk to the patient about potential coping strategies with proper administration of medication and offer tools and accessories that are available in the pharmacy. This paper represents a brief examination of the phenomenon of non-adherence and a reminder of interventions that can improve adherence with recommendations from a health care provider. Many of these interventions can be used by patients in practice and promoted by pharmacists in Poland.
