Promoting Treatment Adherence A Practical Handbook for Health Care Providers



Promoting Treatment Adherence A Practical Handbook for Health Care Providers by William T., PhD. O'Donohue

Promoting Treatment Adherence Providers addresses a central issue in contemporary therapeutic practice: adherence to treatment. This volume will present cutting edge research and theory on adherence, both in general and with respect to individual treatment concerns (such as diabetes, HIV, heart care, etc.). Contributors are all well-known researchers in their respective areas. Sooner or later every therapist encounters issues around adherence. This book will be a valuable resource to a wide range of clinical practitioners. The book will also be of interest to some instructors in clinical courses.


...establishes its place in a broadly used medical school reference library where it can be accessed by a variety of health care providers, including students in medicine, physical therapy, nutrition, and nursing. -- Mary Ann Cook Health professionals can use this book to identify the best available evidence for improving adherence and apply it to their clinical practice. -- S. P. Kalantri
