Oh! I forgot to take my medicines!
How often have you said this or heard people say it? We forget many things in our daily lives, but there is a difference when we forget to take our prescribed medicines. If you missed yesterday’s medicines, you can’t take them today – the damage has already happened in your body.
According to the World Health Organization, “approximately 50% of patients do not take their medications as prescribed.” This can lead to significant increase in hospitalization, treatment failure and even death.
With more than fifteen years of experience in the healthcare domain and after engaging more than 1,50,000+ patients through his organization, Praveen Wadalkar offers insights into the world’s biggest healthcare challenge – medication non-adherence.
Whether you are a patient or a patient’s family member or friend, this book is sure to help save lives. It not only highlights the key reasons for medication non-adherence but also offers several strategies to enable people to take their medicines on time and as prescribed by their doctors.
