May 16 Webinar To Highlight Medication Adherence Report
An upcoming webinar will highlight findings from a recent AHRQ-funded systematic review of interventions to improve medication adherence. The review included randomized controlled trials of patient, provider, or systems interventions to improve adherence to long-term medications, as well as non-randomized studies of policy interventions to improve medication adherence. The webinar, on May 16 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., EDT, will feature report author Christine DeLong Jones, M.D., of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, as part of the NIH Adherence Network Distinguished Speaker Series. The report is part of AHRQ’s Closing the Quality Gap series. The review found improved medication reconciliation for one or more clinical conditions when patients received lower out-of-pocket expenses, case management, and education with behavioral support. Results from this review will be compared with findings from recent reviews of medication adherence in patients with HIV and AIDS. In addition, areas with limited evidence which could be addressed by future research will be highlighted. Select to register for the webinar.
