Overview

Healthy long-term kidney functioning after transplantation requires patients to adhere to regular medications and reviews. Unfortunately, 15% to 40% of these patients fail to adhere to their medical treatment. Non adherence is particularly prevalent in young adults. This results in early graft loss resulting in health and quality of life costs as well as economic costs affecting the society at large. Thus, it is important to identify measures that results in improving treatment adherence in transplant patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Reasons for non adherence
  • Measures for medical staff involved in the patients’ care to help improve adherence
  • Measures for patients and families to help improve adherence
