Medication Adherence (or Medication Taking) Strategies

Medication adherence (or medication taking) is a key predictor of cardiovascular health. For the heart healthy quality improvement project, we have several questions in the staff-led cardiovascular health visit template to prompt providers to have open, honest and blame-free conversations with patients on how they take their medications in order to address challenges with medication taking. The following resource describes the importance of taking medication as prescribed along with strategies to assess and address medication taking.
