Abstract

Despite the universally accepted importance of compliance, strategies known for more than two decades to be effective are not routinely incorporated into clinical practice. For the benefits of primary and secondary prevention to be realized in diverse population groups and settings, emphasis must be placed on implementing strategies at the patient, provider, and organization levels. Current knowledge of compliance strategies, if integrated into a multilevel approach, offers enormous promise for decreasing risk and improving patient outcomes.
