This survey covers the Patient Adherence Survey Instrument for MOS.
Measures of Patient Adherence Survey
The Medical Outcomes Study was a two-year study of patients with chronic conditions. As part of the study, the research team assessed how well patients adhered to treatment regimes.
The measures of patient adherence include two types of measures. A general measure assessed patients' adherence to treatment for heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension; a specific measure assessed patients' adherence to treatment recommendations for the tracer conditions studied in the MOS and also gathered information about how often the patient carried out the recommendations.
This book provides a set of ready-to-use generic measures that are applicable to all adults, including those well and chronically ill, as well as a methodological guide to collecting health data and constructing health measures.
