Adherence

Definitions

- Definition of the Spanish Royal Academy of "Adherence": Adherent quality The degree to which people's behavior (including taking medications) corresponds to recommendations agreed upon by a health care provider, i.e., the degree of compliance. The extent to which a person's behaviour when taking medication, following a diet and/or implementing certain changes in daily habits corresponds to the recommendations agreed with the healthcare provider. Adherence involves adopting a specific attitude towards certain activities related to therapeutic treatment. In this case, it is considered that in order to be an adherent patient, it is necessary to achieve adequate behaviour when, for example: seeking medical attention; filling prescriptions and taking medication correctly; getting vaccinated; going to follow-up appointments; carrying out certain habits to maintain personal hygiene, control asthma, diabetes and tobacco; using contraceptives when required and not maintaining a risky sexual behaviour; and having a balanced diet in combination with adequate physical activity. [1] As early as 1997, the American Heart Association stated that patient adherence depended heavily on the patient's relationship with his or her environment: a minimum of knowledge, motivation, skill, and resources are necessary in order to follow doctor's recommendations.
