Therapy non-compliance is a problem. Often home care patients are not complying correctly with their prescribed therapy schedule, which results in an unnecessarily heightened risk of morbidity, mortality and higher health costs. Emphasis has now shifted to an agreement between patients and practitioners about the course of treatment. This reframing sets the stage for therapy adherence, not simply compliance. Therapy adherence emphasizes the patient’s behavior as it corresponds to outcomes.

Expert facilitator, Ernest Roy, PT, DPT, will delve into reasons behind non-compliance as well as offer proven strategies for moving to adherence. The presentation will interpret various data about therapy adherence, continuity, and persistence, as well as review case studies.

  • Describe what is known about rates of adherence among 4 different patient problems seen in-home care.
