Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Developing adherence research to reduce unnecessary mobility/mortality/cost

From Cochrane Review NOV 20 2014 RB Haynes “It is uncertain how medicine adherence can consistently be improved so that the full health benefits of medicines can be realized. We need more advanced methods for researching ways to improve medicine adherence, including better interventions, better ways of measuring adherence, and studies that include sufficient patients to draw conclusions on clinically important effects.” ...more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

How can we implement what we already know for ASCVD prevention?

We have a number of highly effective evidence-based interventions that have been shown to reduce ASCVD events - statins, BP drugs, aspirin, acute care. Yet large proportions of high risk population groups are not taking evidence-based treatment. Numerous interventions have been tried at multiple levels from the individual patient to the federal government payors. What are the best practices? How can we systematically ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Developing Research to Address the Critical Problem of Nonadherence to Effective Treatments

A large gap in healthcare is nonadherence to proven effective treatments. One important area for reducing morbidity, mortality and cost for patients with chronic diseases that require frequent home, non-healthcare assisted, administration of treatment is the promotion of adherence to treatment recommendations.

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Multilevel and stepped-care approaches to improving adherence

What are successful multilevel combinations of strategies (involving patients, providers and the health care system) and/or stepped-care approaches (tailoring adherence interventions to patient needs) that can be used to improve adherence to behavioral and medical regimens for heart, lung, blood, sleep diseases and disorders?
