abstract

  • In a community-dwelling sample of older adults, nonadherence to medication was associated with both tangible and psychological barriers. Beliefs about medication can be powerful barriers to a successful adherence strategy. Adherence interventions should address the multilevel barriers (psychological, illness, and tangible) to adherence among older adults.
