Treatment Adherence in Dermatology 1st ed – New Medical Book

Description

Poor patient adherence is especially challenging in the field of dermatology, where only 50% of patients with chronic skin conditions adhere to the treatment plan outlined by their provider [1]. About one-third of patients never redeem their prescriptions from a dermatology clinic. Even if patients do fill the prescriptions, adherence often drops off after a few days. Poor adherence leads to poor health outcomes and increased financial expenditure for patients.
