Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This study examined an individualized integrative nursing intervention for improving attitude and adherence.

METHODS:

The sample included 60 patients, randomly assigned to an experimental or control group. Measures included The Visual Analog Scale for Assessing Treatment Compliance and the Drug Attitude Inventory (DAI- 10).

RESULTS:

Significant differences were found in attitude and reported adherence for the experimental group, before and after. Significant differences were found between the experimental and control group in the degree of change in attitude and reported adherence.

CONCLUSIONS:

This study indicates the benefit of integrative one-on-one tailor-made intervention versus routine care for improving attitude and adherence to drug therapy.
