Adherence: Addressing a Range of Patient Health Behaviors

Courage to Care Fact Sheet
Patient adherence challenges health care providers and our healthcare system. Adherence encompasses a wide range of health behaviors related to routine preventative healthcare (e.g., annual mammogram, yearly physical, cholesterol check), recommendations (e.g., maintaining appropriate weight and smoking cessation), and on-going health maintenance (e.g., blood sugar checks, diabetic foot care, taking medications for depression).
