Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

Poor medication adherence is a strong predictor of readmissions and declines in health and function. Unfortunately, current tools offer poor clinical utility for adults with disabilities in the community. Measurement methods will be reviewed and implications for research and practice will be discussed.
