Single blind, randomised controlled trial of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no treatment in management of genuine stress incontinence in women. (1/6919)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no treatment for genuine stress incontinence. DESIGN: Stratified, single blind, randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Multicentre. PARTICIPANTS: 107 women with clinically and urodynamically proved genuine stress incontinence. Mean (range) age was 49.5 (24-70) years, and mean (range) duration of symptoms 10.8 (1-45) years. INTERVENTIONS: Pelvic floor exercise (n=25) comprised 8-12 contractions 3 times a day and exercise in groups with skilled physical therapists once a week. The electrical stimulation group (n=25) used vaginal intermittent stimulation with the MS 106 Twin at 50 Hz 30 minutes a day. The vaginal cones group (n=27) used cones for 20 minutes a day. The untreated control group (n=30) was offered the use of a continence guard. Muscle strength was measured by vaginal squeeze pressure once a month. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Pad test with standardised bladder volume, and self report of severity. RESULTS: Improvement in muscle strength was significantly greater (P=0.03) after pelvic floor exercises (11.0 cm H2O (95% confidence interval 7.7 to 14.3) before v 19.2 cm H2O (15.3 to 23.1) after) than either electrical stimulation (14.8 cm H2O (10. 9 to 18.7) v 18.6 cm H2O (13.3 to 23.9)) or vaginal cones (11.8 cm H2O (8.5 to 15.1) v 15.4 cm H2O (11.1 to 19.7)). Reduction in leakage on pad test was greater in the exercise group (-30.2 g; -43. 3 to 16.9) than in the electrical stimulation group (-7.4 g; -20.9 to 6.1) and the vaginal cones group (-14.7 g; -27.6 to -1.8). On completion of the trial one participant in the control group, 14 in the pelvic floor exercise group, three in the electrical stimulation group, and two in the vaginal cones group no longer considered themselves as having a problem. CONCLUSION: Training of the pelvic floor muscles is superior to electrical stimulation and vaginal cones in the treatment of genuine stress incontinence.  (+info)

Maternal vitamin A or beta-carotene supplementation in lactating bangladeshi women benefits mothers and infants but does not prevent subclinical deficiency. (2/6919)

The effects of maternal postpartum vitamin A or beta-carotene supplementation on maternal and infant serum retinol concentrations, modified relative dose-response (MRDR) ratios and breast milk vitamin A concentrations were assessed during a community-based trial in Matlab, Bangladesh. At 1-3 wk postpartum, women were randomly assigned to receive either (1) a single dose of 200,000 international units [60,000 retinol equivalents (RE)] vitamin A followed by daily placebos (n = 74), (2) daily doses of beta-carotene [7.8 mg (1300 RE)] (n = 73) or (3) daily placebos (n = 73) until 9 mo postpartum. Compared to placebos, vitamin A supplementation resulted in lower maternal MRDR ratios (i.e., increased liver stores) and higher milk vitamin A concentrations at 3 mo, but these improvements were not sustained. The beta-carotene supplementation acted more slowly, resulting in milk vitamin A concentrations higher than the placebo group only at 9 mo. Irrespective of treatment group, over 50% of women produced milk with low vitamin A concentrations (/=0. 06. We conclude that while both interventions were beneficial, neither was sufficient to correct the underlying subclinical vitamin A deficiency in these women nor to bring their infants into adequate vitamin A status.  (+info)

An analysis of multiple misplaced parental social contingencies. (3/6919)

This study analyzed the training of a mother to modify five subclasses of her attention to her young child's noncompliance with instructions, and also displayed the changes in her child's behavior correlated with these events. Training in four subclasses consisted of teaching the mother to withhold various forms of social attention to her daughter's undesired behavior; training in the fifth subclass involved introduction of a brief room-timeout procedure for noncompliance. The effectiveness of the parent-training procedure, consisting of initial instructions and daily feedback, was demonstrated through a multiple-baseline design across the five subclasses of parent behavior. Sequential decreased in the first three subclasses of the mother's social attention to undesired child behavior resulted in incomplete improvements in some child responses; however, a decrease in the fourth subclass resulted in a significant increase in undesired child behavior. Complete remediation of all child behaviors was achieved following the training of a timeout procedure for noncompliance. Postchecks conducted up to 16 weeks later showed that these effects were durable.  (+info)

The effects of social punishment on noncompliance: a comparison with timeout and positive practice. (4/6919)

The effects of social punishment, positive practice, and timeout on the noncompliant behavior of four mentally retarded children were assessed in a multitreatment withdrawal design. When programmed, the experimental procedure occurred contigent on non-compliance to experimenter-issued commands. Commands were given at 55-sec intervals throughout each experimental session. The results showed (1) lower levels of noncompliance with social punishment than with the positive-practice or timeout conditions, and (2) that relatively few applications of social punishment were required to obtain this effect. The advantages of social punishment over other punishment procedures, considerations to be made before using it, and the various aspects of the procedure that contribute to its effectiveness were discussed.  (+info)

Following advice in general practice. (5/6919)

A random sample of 521 patients to whom prescriptions had been issued in an urban general practice were investigated to see how well they followed advice about taking medicines.Most factors that have been previously reported as affecting this did not appear to do so. A very high degree of compliance was achieved and it is suggested that the key factor in this is the relationship between doctor and patient.  (+info)

A multiple drug interaction study of stavudine with agents for opportunistic infections in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients. (6/6919)

The effects of multiple opportunistic infection medications on stavudine pharmacokinetics were evaluated. Ten patients with CD4 counts of less than 200 cells/mm3 received stavudine (40 mg twice daily) in combination with one to three other drugs used to treat opportunistic infections. Serial blood samples for stavudine concentrations were collected after 1 week of therapy on each regimen and assayed for stavudine by using a validated high-pressure liquid chromatography method. Although the maximum concentration of drug in serum was significantly decreased when the drug was given in combination with three opportunistic infection medications, the area under the concentration-time curve did not significantly differ across various treatment regimens. Stavudine exposure was not significantly altered by multiple concomitant medications. Side effects were minor throughout the 3-month study period. The tolerability of stavudine, combined with its lack of drug interactions, makes it an attractive agent for use as part of a combination regimen.  (+info)

Itraconazole oral solution as prophylaxis for fungal infections in neutropenic patients with hematologic malignancies: a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter trial. GIMEMA Infection Program. Gruppo Italiano Malattie Ematologiche dell' Adulto. (7/6919)

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of itraconazole oral solution for preventing fungal infections, a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter trial was conducted: 405 neutropenic patients with hematologic malignancies were randomly assigned to receive either itraconazole, 2.5 mg/kg every 12 hours (201 patients), or placebo (204 patients). Proven and suspected deep fungal infection occurred in 24% of itraconazole recipients and in 33% of placebo recipients, a difference of 9 percentage points (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.6% to 22.5%; P = .035). Fungemia due to Candida species was documented in 0.5% of itraconazole recipients and in 4% of placebo recipients, a difference of 3.5 percentage points (95% CI, 0.5% to 6%; P = .01). Deaths due to candidemia occurred in none of the itraconazole recipients compared with 4 placebo recipients, a difference of 2 percentage points (95% CI, 0.05% to 4%; P = .06). Aspergillus infection was documented in four itraconazole recipients (one death) and one placebo recipient (one death). Side effects causing drug interruption occurred in 18% of itraconazole recipients and 13% of placebo recipients. Itraconazole oral solution was well-tolerated and effectively prevented proven and suspected deep fungal infection as well as systemic infection and death due to Candida species.  (+info)

Higher dosage nicotine patches increase one-year smoking cessation rates: results from the European CEASE trial. Collaborative European Anti-Smoking Evaluation. European Respiratory Society. (8/6919)

The Collaborative European Anti-Smoking Evaluation (CEASE) was a European multicentre, randomized, double-blind placebo controlled smoking cessation study. The objectives were to determine whether higher dosage and longer duration of nicotine patch therapy would increase the success rate. Thirty-six chest clinics enrolled a total of 3,575 smokers. Subjects were allocated to one of five treatment arms: placebo and either standard or higher dose nicotine patches (15 mg and 25 mg daily) each given for 8 or 22 weeks with adjunctive moderately intensive support. The 12 month sustained success rates were: 25 mg patch for 22 weeks (L-25), 15.4%; 25 mg patch for 8 weeks (S-25), 15.9%; 15 mg patch for 22 weeks (L-15), 13.7%; 15 mg patch for 8 weeks (S-15), 11.7%; and placebo (P-0) 9.9% (placebo versus 15 mg, p<0.05; 25 mg versus 15 mg, p<0.03; 25 mg versus placebo, p<0.001, Chi-squared test). There was no significant difference in success rate between the two active treatment durations. Of the first week abstainers (n=1,698), 25.1% achieved success at 12 months as opposed to first week smokers, 2.7% of 1,877 subjects (p< 0.001). In summary, a higher than standard dose of nicotine patch was associated with an increase in the long-term success in smoking cessation but continuation of treatment beyond 8-12 weeks did not increase the success rates.  (+info)

Mf rate in 2015 was 1.35% and drug compliance rate was 86.80%. Reasons for failing to take drugs were fear of side effects (50%), refusals (25%), laziness (16.7%), and perceiving the drug to be useless (8.3%). The chi-square test shows a significant difference between the presence of drug compliance observer and compliance (p=0.006). Filariasis counseling participation and presence of filariasis patients did not show a significant difference with drug compliance (p= 0.986). ...
In-center dialysis patients have multiple physicians involved in their care related to complications of end stage renal disease and the start of dialysis. This study reviewed the number of physicians involved in the participants (n=41) care and determined if it was associated with medication compliance and additionally assessed the in-center dialysis facility staffs ability to keep up-to-date home medication orders. Participant interviews, home medication reviews, and reconciliations were completed. The average number of medications ordered per participant was 11.58, and 37% of all medications ordered needed corrections made to the home medication orders. The average number of physicians per participant was 3.66, and 66% of participants reported noncompliance with some part of their medication regime. Results showed no correlation between the number of physicians involved in participants care and medication compliance. Participants with a higher number of medications had lower compliance.
Conclusions Based on these results, action planning appears useful in increasing exercise adherence, especially when intentions are low and when coping planning is not present, since these acted as parameters for effectiveness. High intentions and confidence in plans seem beneficial for optimizing adherence and action planning appears to compensate a lack of intentions. Current study only measured adherence once and confidence in plans could not be measured in the control group, hence nothing could be concluded about behaviour maintenance or moderating effects of confidence in plans on action planning effectiveness. Future studies should focus on longer term effects and ways to increase intentions and confidence in plans. Similar studies into other behavioural change techniques are needed to expand our knowledge in their parameters for effectiveness.. Present study covers a relatively new area within rheumatology, namely improving exercise adherence behaviour, which might increase ...
The Role of Medication Compliance in Improving Outcomes of Pharmaceutical Care ... Managing medication compliance = improved outcomes ... – A free PowerPoint PPT presentation (displayed as a Flash slide show) on PowerShow.com - id: 24ef1-Y2VlO
The present article considered cardiovascular patients adherence to physicians medication recommendations. Nonadherence was defined as following the suggested medicine regiment 75 percent or less of the time. Study participants were 1,015 outpatients with coronary heart disease (CHD) who took part in the Heart and Soul Study. Participants were asked about adherence and had their medical records evaluated for cardiovascular events such as CHD death, myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke over a period of 3.9 years. Additionally, the risks related to nonadherence by patients with CHD were compared to risks related to diabetes, hypertension and smoking.. Key Findings:. ...
In medication adherence-promotion trials, participants in the intervention arm are often cognizant of the researchers aim to improve adherence; this may lead to their inflating reports of their own adherence compared to control arm participants. Using data from 1,247 HIV-positive participants across eight U.S. Studies in the Multi-site Adherence Collaboration on HIV (MACH14) collaboration, we evaluated the validity of self-reported adherence by examining whether its association with two more objective outcomes [1], electronically monitored adherence and [2] viral load, varied by study arm. After adjusting for potential confounders, there was no evidence of greater overestimation of self-reported adherence among intervention arm participants, supporting its potential as a trial outcome indicator ...
The pharmaceutical industry is divided on how to address the larger problem of patient adherence. Some companies believe that patient adherence will be at the core of their business model in the future and are transforming current practices to reflect this belief. Others believe that patient adherence is too difficult for the industry to solve on its own. Companies such as Merck and GlaxoSmithKline are betting on the adherence model: recently, both Merck and GSK reviewed their specific adherence issues, uncovered root causes, and are now establishing enhanced capabilities to improve overall patient adherence. In 2011, Merck set up a center of excellence to focus exclusively on adherence.1 In the same year, GSK created a Patient Engagement Group to define standard patient adherence approaches across chronic diseases within its portfolio2.. Despite efforts by a few players, the industry as a whole lags in addressing the adherence issue. A recent patient-adherence report, Vision & Reality3, found ...

Background. Low adherence rates to antihypertensive pharmacotherapy have been documented everywhere, especially among people of lower socioeconomic status such as Medicaid beneficiaries. Existing studies tend to focus on hypertensive patients who received mono-therapy or measure adherence at a fixed point in time, which may generate external validity issues or not be suitable for patients whose survival periods vary considerably. Purpose. To examine the relationship between patient adherence to antihypertensive medication and subsequent risk of cardiovascular events by using a new approach to measure adherence. Methods. A secondary data analysis of a mid-Atlantic Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO) data was conducted. We used Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) models and logistic regression models to examine predictors of patients adherence at one year post index date. We also used Coxs Proportional Hazard models and pooled logistic regressions to investigate the relationship between adherence ...

Methods and systems for enabling and supporting patient compliance with a health treatment program or with health-related instructions from a caregiver are described. An interactive feedback loop is implemented that enhances and improves on present methods of monitoring and supporting patient compliance with treatment programs, particularly for patients with chronic conditions. A patient enters various types of data (e.g., biometric readings, diary entries, responses to surveys and health assessments, etc.) to a health data management system that includes a patient compliance monitoring system. The patient is encouraged to enter as much data as is practical and as frequently as possible. The feedback loop of the present invention provides compliance messages to the patient in a timely manner that are responsive to the data entered by the patient. The messages are customized, supportive, and timely. The system can also implement a reward scheme in which patients who go beyond their prescribed treatment
Background: Noncompliance with diet and fluid restriction is a problem in patients with heart failure (HF). In recent studies, a relationship between compliance with sodium and fluid restriction and knowledge and beliefs regarding compliance was found. In these studies, however, compliance was primarily measured by interview or questionnaire. Objectives: To examine the relationship between compliance with sodium and fluid restriction measured with a nutrition diary and knowledge, beliefs, and other relevant variables in HF patients. Methods: Eighty-four HF patients completed a nutrition diary for 3 days. Patients also completed questionnaires on knowledge, beliefs regarding compliance, and depressive symptoms. Differences in relevant variables between compliant and noncompliant patients were assessed. Results: Compliance with sodium and fluid restriction was 79% and 72%. Although not statistically significant, a higher percentage of patients were compliant with the less stringent restrictions ...
In the literature, adherence is assessed on a continuum as the number of sessions of exercises reported divided by prescribed. This does not provide information on how consistent a participant was in doing exercise and consistency of strength training is critical to its effectiveness. We developed a measure of adherence that reflects consistency, choosing a threshold of a minimum of 1 time per week for 80% of the weeks. An 80% threshold permits vacations/illness/life events that may limit exercise opportunities. We will also measure adherence by exercise sessions performed/sessions prescribed ...

One thing we do know; even if your patient reports good compliance with their glaucoma medication, they probably arent taking it as often as they tell you. Studies estimate that as high as 25% of patients prescribed glaucoma medication actually take NONE of the drops prescribed. Only 25 to 35% of patients in the same study had full compliance. This means that most people have partial compliance - -getting the drop in irregularly. Usually they remember when it gets closer to their next appointment (just like flossing your teeth before you see the dentist!). When the patient has their pressure checked, it may read normally if they have used their drops more regularly over the past few days, but their peripheral vision or optic nerve scans may show increased damage. What is the doctor left to think?? Well, if your doctor thinks you are getting your drops in regularly and you are still having progression of glaucoma, they are going to prescribe more drops! ...

Major depression is one of the risk factors identified for increased morbidity and mortality in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). Recently, psychological factors were found to be one of the modifiable risk factors for myocardial infarction. Several biological mechanisms could account for the increased risk of CHD events in patients with depression. However, one factor that has not been well researched is whether patients with depression are less likely to participate in cardiac prevention and treatment regimens. With other diseases, depression has been shown to decrease patients compliance with medication regimens. Gehi and associates assessed the effect of depression on adherence to treatment regimens in patients with CHD in the outpatient setting.. This cohort study was multicentered and included outpatients with known stable CHD. All of the participants received a baseline examination that included being assessed for major depression using a computerized interview and the nine-item ...

Without putting in all the confidence intervals I can tell you that the Next Step was the tightest. What you notice immediately (or at least I did) was that no matter what the compliance, the self inflating bag delivers quite an excessive volume even in experienced hands regardless of compliance. At low compliance the t-piece resuscitators do an admirable job as 5-6 ml/kg of delivered Vt is reasonable but as compliance improves the volumes increase substantially. It is worth pointing out that at low compliance the Next Step was unable to deliver the prescribed Vt but knowing that if you had a baby who wasnt responding to ventilation I would imagine you would then try a setting of 6 ml/kg to compensate much like you would increase the pressure on a typical device. How might these devices do in a 29 week infant for example with better compliance than say a 24 week infant? You cant help but wonder how many babies are given minutes of excessive Vt after birth during PPV with the traditional ...
However, the clinical significance is unclear because outcomes werent studied. Editorialist says future research should test which components of the PCMH model most affect adherence.
Ability to adhere to complex medical regimens is critical to achieving successful transplant outcomes, as non-adherent patients suffer graft failure and death following transplantation. Since potential recipients greatly exceed organ availability, identification of candidates who will adhere to complex post-transplant regimens is critically important and emphasized by practice guidelines. When selecting candidates for transplant, physicians try to subjectively predict post-transplant adherence because, although tools exist to measure current adherence, tools that reliably predict future adherence are lacking. Despite rigorous medical and psychosocial screening pretransplant, non-adherence rates are high following transplant. Therefore, the current approach for predicting future non-adherence is suboptimal, subjective, and greatly needs strategies for improvement.. Pre-transplant self-management abilities represent a marker of future adherence post-transplant. Assessing self-management as a means ...
As gastroenterology struggles to increase colorectal cancer screening compliance rates nationwide, Exact Sciences is surpassing the national compliance rate with its fecal immunotherapy test, Cologuard.
Around the world, public health efforts to deal with a wide variety of chronic conditions are being undermined by the alarmingly low adherence to therapies, according to a report recently issued by the World Health Organization. Adherence problems are found in all situations where the self-administration of treatment is required, with illnesses that include asthma, hypertension, depression, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and dependence on tobacco or other substances. In developed countries, adherence to therapies averages 50%, and the figures are much lower in less developed nations. Poor adherence is the primary reason for not achieving the full health benefits medicines can provide to patients, said Dr. Derek Yach, Executive Director, Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health, World Health Organization (WHO). It causes medical and psychosocial complications of disease, reduces patients quality of life, increases the likelihood of development of drug resistance, and wastes health care ...
Background : Rauwolfia vomitoria, a tropical shrub, is a medicinal plant used in the treatment of a variety of ailments. It is popular to the locals because of its anti-hypertensive and sedative properties. Aim : This is to find the probable teratogenic effects of ethanolic leaf and root bark extracts of Rauwolfia vomitoria on the morphological and histological features of the fetal heart. Material and Methods: Twenty five female rats weighing between 170-200g were used for this study. The rats were divided into five groups labeled A, B, C, D and E, with each group consisting of five rats. Pregnancy was induced by caging the female rats with sexually matured males. The presence of vaginal plug and tail structures in the vaginal smear the following morning confirmed coition, and it was regarded as day 0 of pregnancy. Group A was given sham treatment of distilled water. Group B and C received respectively 150mg/kg and 250mg/kg body weight doses of ethanolic leaf extract of Rauwolfia vomitoria, and ...
Offering the promise of better patient compliance with health care, a new digital pill allows physicians to track whether its been ingested by patients.
As many as half of Americans dont stick to their medication regimens. Now, health-care providers have new strategies to increase adherence, as concerns rise about health risks and the high costs of treating noncompliant patients.
Techniques for reducing non-compliance of medication use are described. The techniques involve generating and storing an identifier for a specific dosage instance of a specific patient, and creating a package that includes a mechanism for conveying the identifier. Once the package is created, a set of one or more medications that are prescribed to be taken by the specific patient at the specific dosage instance are placed in the package. The set of medications within the package in a manner that prevents the identifier from being perceived from the mechanism until the package is opened. Once opened, the identifier is perceived and communicated back to an automated compliance system.

Results: Among 32 patients, 18 were male while 14 were female with mean age of 56 years. Twenty six out of thirty two (81.25%) patients did not comply with their antihypertensive medications. In majority of the patients (42.3%), misperception about disease and management due to inadequate education by health care providers was found to be the cause of non-compliance. Other causes were considering medication unnecessary (15.3%) or ineffective (11.5%), forgetting to take them regularly (11.5%), unaffordable drug prices (11.5%) and unpleasant side effects (7.7 ...

Once you buy a BP electronic monitor, take it along to a doctors appointment, and ask the nurse to take your BP and compare with your machine. Keep in mind that some nurses rush BP tests which results in inaccurate scores.. When taking you BP at home, take it after a fifteen minute rest, after relieving yourself, and in the absence of irritation and noise. Your highest results in the day are not your official BP. An average between the lowest and highest readings is much more real. It is pointless to take your BP right after heavy exertion or a family argument. It will be way over normal.. Do not become obsessed with taking your BP. This can actually raise your BP due to anxiety. Been there, done that.. The normal range set by the medical profession does not take into account the fact that we are all different. If you are eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and avoiding excess stress, slightly elevated BP numbers may not be serious and worth the side effects of BP drugs. This is ...
And what about long-acting injectable PrEP for prevention?. The analogy I make is to contraceptives, said Baeten. A woman seeking contraception can walk into her doctors office and would be presented with a number of options-theres a pill she can take every day, or a shot she can take every few months, or maybe an implant that will last for a long time. Each option has its pluses and minuses, and side effects. Some people dont want something thats inside them for a long time, while other people wont mind. Each person has to decide for themselves which pluses and minuses will make the most sense for them, he explained.. Will injectables solve adherence issues?. The other side of the coin is that even if a person is on a longer-acting medication, how adherent are they going to be? Lee asked. All of a sudden theyre just getting an injection every now and then-will that lead to more non-adherence? I think these are questions that we dont know the answers to. The nice thing about seeing ...
Purpose : To assess the feasibility of using automated text parsing to screen physician notes in the electronic health record (EHR) to identify glaucoma patients with poor medication compliance. Methods : For recruitment to a larger study assessing the impact of a glaucoma coaching program on medication adherence, we used an automated EHR pull to identify patients who received ophthalmic care at the University of Michigan, had a diagnosis of glaucoma, were ≥40 years old, and took ≥1 glaucoma medication. A manual chart review was performed to exclude those deceased, or with severe mental illness or cognitive impairment. A research associate called patients and, if interested, assessed their medication adherence with two validated instruments, the Chang Scale and the Morisky Medication Adherence Scale. In tandem, we used the Electronic Medical Record Search Engine (EMERSE), a text parsing tool that abstracts data from the text section of the EHR to search for the terms noncompliant and ...

The results of this study suggest that a daily intake of 120 mg NOPE and 105 mg of EGCG for 4-weeks, can enhance compliance to a low caloric diet, total mood score, feelings of fatigue, and confusion, but does not alter body mass or body fat to any greater magnitude than placebo. However, these benefits were not maintained by week 8 of the study, where only feelings of tension were reduced in comparison to placebo. These findings contrast with Rondanelli et al.,[17] in which sustained compliance and improvements in feelings of satiety, and severity of binge eating were observed for 8-weeks of study duration.. It is possible that the method used to determine dietary compliance may have contributed to the differences between the studies. In the present investigation, compliance was defined as the ability to maintain the recommended low caloric diet. Rondonelli and colleagues defined compliance in terms of drop-out rate[17]. This may not entirely capture compliance, as approximately 72% of the ...
Measurement of treatment compliance using a medical device for glaucoma patients associated with intraocular pressure control: a survey Jean-Philippe Nordmann1, Christophe Baudouin1, Jean-Paul Renard2, Philippe Denis3, Antoine Lafuma4, Caroline Laurendeau4, Viviane Jeanbat4, Gilles Berdeaux5,61Hôpital des Quinzes-Vingt, Paris, France; 2Hôpital du Val de Grâce, Paris, France; 3Hôpital Edouard Herriot, Lyon, France; 4Cemka, Bourg-la-Reine, France; 5Alcon France, Rueil-Malmaison, France; 6Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, Paris, FranceObjective: To identify and characterize treatment compliance profiles of glaucoma patients and evaluate the association with intraocular pressure (IOP).Methods: A computerized device (Travalert®) that recorded daily instillation times and eye-drop counts was given for 3 months.

A system and method for controlling patient access to an entertainment program to encourage a patient to comply with a treatment plan. The method includes the step of collecting compliance data from the patient. In one embodiment, the compliance data includes measurements of a physiological condition of the patient as well as patient answers to compliance questions. The method further includes the step of comparing the compliance data to evaluation criteria selected by a healthcare provider to determine if the patient is in compliance with the treatment plan. If the patient is in compliance, access is granted to the entertainment program. If the patient is not in compliance, access to the entertainment program is restricted. In the preferred embodiment, the method includes the additional steps of transmitting and displaying the patients compliance data and compliance status to the healthcare provider.
Results Between 1 January 2012 and 31 December 2014, a total of 6074 patients were treated for chlamydia and 425 for gonorrhoea in Estonia. Among all prescriptions, 48.6% were non-compliant with gonorrhoea treatment guidelines and 3.8% for chlamydia. Non-compliant antibiotic treatment for gonorrhoea was associated with patient gender (female (adjusted OR (AOR)) 3.0, 95% CI 1.6 to 5.9), region (east AOR 3.3, 95% CI 1.3 to 8.2; west AOR 6.5, 95% CI 2.2 to 19.7) and prescribing physician specialty (general healthcare doctors: AOR 5.6, 95% CI 2.3 to 13.8; gynaecologists: AOR 5.9, 95% CI 2.8 to 12.4). Non-compliant antibiotic treatment for chlamydia was associated with younger patient age (15-24 AOR 0.5, 95% CI 0.4 to 0.7), region (north AOR 1.9, 95% CI 1.4 to 2.6; west AOR 2.3, 95% CI 1.5 to 3.4) and multiple treatment episodes (AOR 2.7, 95% CI 2.1 to 3.9). Approximately 14% of prescriptions were multiple treatments for the same patient for the same infection over the 3-year period (6.1% for ...
Physical activity reduces the risk for disease, improves overall health, and quality of life. Group exercise classes are large contributors for meeting physical activity recommendations. Improving long-term adherence to group exercise classes is essential in order to receive health and fitness benefits. Many contributing factors affect adherence rates including the role of the instructor. The instructor has great influence over the decision to return to a group exercise class. It is important to find out what qualities and characteristics are preferred among those who take classes to increase long-term adherence. Another important factor relating to adherence is body type, appearance and attractiveness of the instructor. These factors have been influential in other areas including performance enhancement consulting, counseling, teacher ratings, and willingness to accept health advice. However, little research has been done to determine if body type, appearance and attractiveness influence adherence to
The relation between treatment adherence and clinical prognosis appears straightforward. Patients who consume a sufficient quantity of an effective medication should have better outcomes than those who do not. The reports by Gallagher and colleagues and others (1) describe a more complex relation: High adherence may improve prognosis even if the medication is a placebo. Recent research suggests that pill counts, the adherence measure in this study and in most clinical trials, are often manipulated by the patient and can overestimate medication consumption (2). Thus, the excellent adherence of participants in this study, 91% of whom seemed to consume ≥ 75% of their medication, may be more apparent than real. In any event, the clinical trial setting limits the generalizability of these findings to the more heterogeneous world of clinical practice. This limitation, however, does not invalidate the methods and conclusions of the study. The patients with high adherence rates in this study may also ...

Many patients in New Zealand dont receive the benefits from their medications due to poor medication behaviour, referred to as medication adherence. Previously, data related to medication adherence has been gathered using questionnaire surveys based on the Health Belief Model (HBM), a psychological model that attempts to explain and predict health behaviours. This research study uses big data analytics to conduct a spatial and time series analysis using new and varied sources. It will be based on the HBM and look at patients geographical information and medication history data. It will focus on cardiovascular disease, although it is expected the same findings will be able to be applied to other chronic illnesses.. ...
Despite increased awareness, poor adherence to treatments for chronic diseases remains a global problem. Adherence issues are common in patients taking antihypertensive therapy and associated with increased risks of coronary and cerebrovascular events. Whilst there has been a gradual trend towards improved control of hypertension, the number of patients with blood pressure values above goal has remained constant. This has both personal and economic consequences. Medication adherence is a multifaceted issue and consists of three components: initiation, implementation and persistence. A combination of methods is recommended to measure adherence, with electronic monitoring and drug measurement being the most accurate. Pill burden, resulting from free combinations of blood pressure lowering treatments, makes the daily routine of medication taking complex, which can be a barrier to optimal adherence. Single-pill fixed-dose combinations simplify the habit of medication taking and improve medication adherence.

We investigated whether a novel analysis of adherence data could correctly classify virological failure and potentially inform a selective testing strategy. ...
A course of treatment with checkpoint inhibitors Yervoy (ipilimumab) and Opdivo (nivolumab) for patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma is every 3 weeks for a total of four doses. Almost forty percent of patients receiving this combined regimen discontinue treatment because of immune-related adverse events. Toxicities that contribute to early discontinuation of the 4-dose combined checkpoint regimen include diarrhea, colitis, elevated liver enzymes. Systemic steroids are the most frequently used immunosuppressive therapy for the management of adverse events on checkpoint inhibitors. Limiting the course of therapy and administering immunosuppressive therapy to manage toxicities on combined checkpoint inhibition, however, could abrogate the desired anti-cancer effects.. Does discontinuation of combined checkpoint inhibition therapy negatively affect efficacy?. Researchers at Sloan Kettering performed a pooled analysis of patients participating in the Phase II CheckMate 069 and Phase III ...

Homework assignments that patient work with between sessions is a key component in both face-to-face and Internet-based Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). However, adherence to assignments is often low and it is largely unclear what factors predict or affect treatment adherence, and in the end, treatment outcomes. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate if treatment presentation and therapist support can affect adherence and treatment outcome in internet-based CBT, whether adherence can be predicted by motivation variables and to compare differences in face-to-face and online conditions in this regard.. A randomized controlled trial with a brief online relaxation program for people with stress and anxiety symptoms was conducted (n = 162). Participants in the enhanced support conditions completed a larger proportion of the online treatment but adherence was not affected by enhanced treatment presentation (Study I). Participants reported reduced symptoms of stress and anxiety after the ...

In the present study, 10.6% patients did not comply to the treatment. Overall compliance rate was 89.4%. Alcaide Megias et al4 (1999) found compliance rate of 91.8%. Similarly, Smirnoff et al5 (1998) reported 85% overall compliance with DOTS treatment. Sunil Bhat et al6 (1998) reported adherence to treatment to the extent of 80%.. It is evident from the study that patients falling in 35-44 years age group are more non-compliant (25.4%) to the treatment followed by the patients aged above 45 years (18.1%) and the patients in age group 15-24 years were least (3.5%) non-compliant. Since 25.4% of these patients (35-44 years) were found to be non-complaint and the reason for this may be that in majority of these cases, patient was only economically active person in the family and hence could not spare time to visit DOTS clinic on a regular basis. Menzis D et al7 (1996) found that older subjects were less compliant.. The present study shows that non-compliance to treatment was equally prevalent among ...
Poor medication compliance in chronic diseases in a well-known public health problem. Pharmacists play a key role in optimizing medication use in patients with chronic conditions.
Novocure has announced results from a retrospective post-hoc analysis of its phase 3 pivotal EF-14 trial data showing that increased compliance with Optune predicted increased survival in glioblastoma (GBM) patients. Results were highlighted in an oral presentation at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) in San Francisco.. The analysis showed that an Optune compliance threshold as low as 50 percent correlated with significantly improved outcomes in patients treated with Optune together with temozolomide compared to patients treated with temozolomide alone. The results also demonstrated that the greater patients compliance with Optune, the better their outcomes.. Patients who used Optune more than 90 percent of the time (n=43) had the greatest chance of survival: a median survival of 24.9 months from randomization and a five-year survival of 29.3 percent. The median time from diagnosis to randomization was 3.8 months for patients treated with Optune together with ...

Discussion. The aim of this study was to identify the relevant characteristics that might have been associated with non-adherence to treatment, in a group of patients who presented poor adherence to HAART. During the time period of the study, 898 (64.4%) men and 497 (35.6%) women were treated at the HUPES outpatient clinic. It is noteworthy that more women (33 subjects, 70% of sample) showed poor adherence to HAART. This result is consistent with a study developed in Belo Horizonte, MG, that confirmed poorer adherence among women.23 Likewise, another multicentric study developed by the AIDS Clinical Trials Group in the United States, Puerto Rico and Italy24 reported women as having a greater risk of virologic failure due to poor adherence. Nevertheless, there are other recent studies that did not find a relationship between gender and levels of adherence.25,26 Moreover, a systematic review on differences of adherence according to gender found a marginally significant difference of lower ...

Thats one of the questions raised by a new study on patient adherence rates by the nations top independent pharmacy organization. In its first National Report Card on Adherence, the National Community Pharmacists Association gives U.S. adults ages 40 and older only a so-so grade of C+ overall, and says 1-in-7 of those medication users rate an F. Millions of adults ages 40 and older with chronic conditions are departing from doctors instructions in taking their medications - skipping, missing or forgetting whether theyve taken doses, failing to fill or refill prescriptions, under- or over-dosing, or taking medication prescribed for a different condition or to a different person, NCPA reported.. Factors like the out-of-pocket cost of a prescription and the patients age - older patients tend to adhere more to their drug therapy than do younger ones - play a big part in adherence rates. And of course patients tend to skip their meds if they dont want to deal with the side effects, or if they ...

An Example of Defining Patient Compliance: 10.4018/978-1-61520-723-7.ch009: This case examines the issue of compliance by patients at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry (ULSD). The focus is defining compliance and
We assessed the validity of TEXAS to record COPD exacerbations in prospective clinical studies, and compared its detection rate, compliance and patient preference with conventional recording methods (weekly paper diary cards and medical record review). The validity of TEXAS was high, independent of the exacerbation definition used. Detection rates and patients compliance in providing exacerbation-related information differed significantly between the recording strategies, but were highest with TEXAS. Patient preference did not differ significantly between TEXAS and the paper diary cards.. When assessing the validity of any instrument, deciding on the gold standard (i.e. the generally accepted method to measure the outcome) is crucial [27]. TEXAS was developed to record exacerbations based on common definition criteria, such as symptom changes or events [8]. Consequently, we used as our gold standard the information on worsening of symptoms, use of oral medication and/or use of healthcare ...
Stream of alert notifications. The case of Cameron Washington, 31, shows that troubling issues existed with the system.. Washington now is charged with raping two women - one while armed with a gun, the other while armed with a knife - and the attempted rape of another woman in November while enrolled in the intensive-supervision program.. His electronic monitor generated a steady, ongoing stream of alert notifications following his release from prison after serving a sentence for attempted burglary and trespassing. The day he was hooked up to his electronic monitor in September, he disappeared from his motel. Officials, for the most part, responded by continually calling the motels front desk - more than 70 telephone calls in all - even after they confirmed he was no longer staying there.. More than a month after he left the motel, officials noted he needed a new electronic monitor since the state was switching vendors, but they didnt know where he was. Nothing in the parole documents the ...
For a range of chronic immune-mediated inflammatory diseases, patients beliefs and concerns can influence how well they adhere to drug therapy, new research shows.
While the majority of patients may benefit from physical therapy, less than 15% on average are given prescriptions for PT, noted Oberlander. Many ignore their injury until it becomes debilitating or rely on medications to alleviate pain. In some cases, patients would actually prefer to undergo surgery to relieve their suffering.. To learn more about how telerehab works, view this short video: http://bit.ly/2DaNfdp. Oberlander explained that two primary reasons people dont seek physical therapy are cost and convenience.. In my sports medicine practice I saw a significant gap with conventional rehabilitation, he noted. Patients were paying more, not completing their PT treatment plans and were relying more on pain medicines.. Oberlander said that reduction in reimbursements have pushed the burden of paying for physical therapy to the patient. Out-of-pocket costs today can range between $60 to $175 per session. Additionally, work, family life and other life pressures have also infringed on ...
The VT was not perfectly delivered in the normal condition by 3 ventilators: Hamilton T1, Medumat, and Osiris 3. All the others had a , 5% average VT error. But the Hamilton T1 was unable to deliver an accurate VT of 300 mL in the low compliance and resistance condition, although the manufacturer claims that it can be used for pediatric patients. The delivered VT was too high (430 mL instead of 300 mL). Pediatric patients usually have high compliance and need low VT (, 300 mL).. With VT preset at 6 mL/kg of predicted body weight, a 17% VT error represents an error of 1 mL/kg.9 Thus, the VT error range can be 1-3 mL/kg with the ventilators we tested. The clinical implication of this finding is unclear. In ARDS patients, for example, setting an accurate VT is crucial, to avoid alveolar damage, despite the most recent studies on VT in ARDS that found no mortality difference between 7 mL/kg and 10 mL/kg.10-12 Clearly, transport ventilators are not designed or usually used to ventilate patients with ...
Persistence rates were similar through the first 60 days of therapy. The mandatory mail cohort had a notable drop in persistence by day 90 (63.3% vs. 56.3%, p < 0.001), with a more pronounced drop among those without previous mail-service pharmacy use (50.5%). Median medication possession ratio (49.2% vs. 57.4%) and optimal adherence (33.6% vs. 36.1) were also lower. In the multivariable models, mandatory mail participants were less likely to achieve optimal adherence overall (odds ratio [OR], 0.70; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.67-0.74) and in the metformin (OR, 0.55), sulfonylurea (OR, 0.72), ACE inhibitor (OR, 0.74), ARB (OR, 0.69), and statin (OR, 0.69) classes. Participants with no prior use of mail-service pharmacy had significantly lower odds of achieving optimal adherence in all therapeutic classes.. ...
In this large diverse cohort with structured follow-up for hypertension at clinics that received audit and feedback similar to current best practices for chronic disease management [23, 24], we found that clinical and demographic participant characteristics remained associated with both visit and medication adherence. While these associations are not large enough to aid clinical decision-making for individual patients, they could significantly affect reimbursement in systems that reward improved adherence. Similarly, these differences could have important implications for designing and powering RCTs. Moreover, while clinic characteristics impact both medication and visit adherence, the ability of larger, more structured clinics (e.g., VAMC, university, or group practices) to achieve better visit adherence did not translate into improved medication adherence. Indeed, better visit adherence was not associated with improved medication adherence at the participant level, suggesting that closer ...
This resource discusses how neurological complications of progressive HIV-1 infection remain a common cause of morbidity even during widespread use of antiretroviral therapy (ART). It addresses how long-term resistance to ART, drug compliance, untoward drug side effects, a myriad of opportunistic infection, depression and other psychiatric disease manifestations, concomitant drug abuse, neuropathies, and an inability to clear viral reservoirs, explain, in large measure, disease progression and immune deterioration. It then covers the association with a number of psychiatric, muscle, nerve, infectious, as well as cognitive, behavioral, and motor disturbances seen in infected people, with a focus on the neurological complications, molecular and viral disease processes, cellular factors influencing viral replication therapeutic challenges, and the changing epidemiological patterns of disease. Less ...
