A Practical Handbook for Health Care Providers

Edited by:

July 2012 | 472 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Promoting Treatment Adherence Providers addresses a central issue in contemporary therapeutic practice: adherence to treatment. This volume will present cutting edge research and theory on adherence, both in general and with respect to individual treatment concerns (such as diabetes, HIV, heart care, etc.). Contributors are all well-known researchers in their respective areas. Sooner or later every therapist encounters issues around adherence. This book will be a valuable resource to a wide range of clinical practitioners. The book will also be of interest to some instructors in clinical courses.
