Let your patients with asthma know about lower-price options if you want to improve compliance
Pharmacists have an important role to play in improving medication adherence among patients with asthma, say Australian researchers.
A new study has revealed the price sensitivity of patients with asthma and the impact of costs on patient decision making and adherence to use of asthma preventer medicines.
Researchers from the University of Sydney, Asthma Australian and other bodies conducted in-depth interviews with 24 adults and 20 carers of children with asthma.
The research was published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health.
