The goal of this study is to identify ways for implementing small prizes allocated by a drawing to improve adherence to antiretroviral medication in an HIV clinic in Kampala, Uganda. The s...
Despite great strides, hypertension remains an incredibly important disease and public health problem. This study addresses this critical need among ED patients, a unique population of pat...
Poor medication adherence is a major contributor to inadequate BP control, and is associated with 125,000 deaths annually. Translation of adherence interventions to community-based primary...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of a clinic-based culturally tailored intervention, delivered by bilingual Health Coaches, on medication-taking behaviors and blood pre...
This research is being done to compare the effectiveness of standard on-site, in-person counseling with Internet web-based videoconferencing (e-therapy) in drug-dependent patients in opioi...
Poor medication adherence has been shown to cause medical complications, death, and increased healthcare costs and may be of particular importance in patients with substance use disorder (SUD). Concer...
Understanding how women use PrEP is important for developing successful implementation programs. We hypothesized there are distinct patterns of adherence, related to HIV risk and other factors. We ide...
This cross-sectional study assessed determinants of HIV clinic appointment attendance and antiretroviral treatment (ART) adherence among 300 male fisherfolk on ART in Wakiso District, Uganda. Multi-le...
Adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) is used to prevent recurrence and reduce mortality for women with hormone receptor positive breast cancer. Poor adherence to AET is a significant problem and contribut...
Adherence and safety challenges aroused with the use of oral chemotherapeutic agents, such as capecitabine, necessitated implementation of a more focused follow-up for patients receiving these agents.
An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.
Approach to improve the quality of care by selectively encouraging or discouraging the use of specific health care services, based on their potential benefit to patients' health, relative to their cost. One element is lowering beneficiary cost sharing or out-of-pocket spending to increase medication adherence.
Test for cell-mediated antitumor immunity and related serum blocking factors based on the finding that leukocytes from cancer patients, but not from controls, when mixed in vitro with antigenic extracts of tumors of the same histological type, undergo a diminution in their normal adherence to glass surfaces. Sera from tumor-bearing patients block the LAI reaction of their own leukocytes or those of other patients with the same type of tumor.
Cell surface proteins that bind acetylcholine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Cholinergic receptors are divided into two major classes, muscarinic and nicotinic, based originally on their affinity for nicotine and muscarine. Each group is further subdivided based on pharmacology, location, mode of action, and/or molecular biology.
Prejudice or discrimination based on gender or behavior or attitudes that foster stereotyped social roles based on gender.
