||Compliance in developed nations.
||TUBERCLE 1987 ( Suppl), 68, 25-29.
The problems of compliance among TB patients are
similar in developed and developing nations and the solutions are
a little different. The reasons for non-compliance, the kind of
patients in whom non-compliance is high, the problems in detecting
compliance, patients attitudes which affect compliance and
suggestions to overcome these attitude problems are presented. Ways
to reduce non-compliance include such means as providing SCC, directly
administered therapy, providing all treatment medications only once
daily, providing a fixed-dose combination of treatment drugs and,
treating the patients on an out-patient basis.
