Medication non-adherence is a significant issue that affects the health outcomes of patients across the world. It refers to the failure to take medication as prescribed by healthcare professionals, either in terms of frequency or dosage. Non-adherence can occur for various reasons, and it can be classified into five domains: socio-economic, healthcare system-related, therapy-related, patient-related, and condition-related. In this blog post, we will discuss each domain in detail and explore the factors that contribute to medication non-adherence.
