The head of the research team for this study, Dr. Walid Al-Shehri, said that the main objective of this study is to find the reasons behind non-adherence to medications so that we can identify appropriate solutions and reduce any obstacle that may lead to non-adherence.
Dr. added. Monthly, that the therapeutic benefit and desired health outcomes may be affected by non-adherence to medication, especially among patients with advanced diseases in the palliative care clinic.
The study, in which the clinical pharmacist Mohammed Al-Mutairi, the pharmacist Hasan Al-Khasr and the pharmacist research specialist Razan Orfali participated, confirmed that there is a need for more studies to design new techniques to increase drug adherence in palliative care patients.
