Abstract

The documented low rate of compliance can result from ineffective communication by the pharmaceutical and medical profession, and poor comprehension of prescription instructions by the public. Presented are several examples of how pharmacists can assist physicians in improving and monitoring their patients' compliance behavior. Strategies to enhance communication through the written prescription are offered.
