Summary of "Discrepancy Among Self-Reported Adherence, Prescription Refills, and Actual Anticoagulant Control."

Patients must adhere to their prescribed warfarin regimens and regularly monitor the anticoagulation effect to maintain therapeutic levels. The ability to evaluate regimen adherence accurately is crucial to the success of patient coaching. However, prevention of thromboembolic events is challenging when the association between medication adherence and the actual amount of anticoagulant agent taken cannot be determined.
