How are you going to improve this patients compliance?

Thank you for asking,

I would,

        1)      Determine their understanding of their illness and treatment
        2)      Prescribe the least complex schedule
        3)      Use daily routines as a medication prompt
        4)      Education about the drugs and side-effects
        5)      Consider does-dispensers or calendars
        6)      Involve families, partners and friends
        7)      Monitor their response and provide written information
