(HealthDay)—Patients' adherence-related information, motivation, and behavioral skills (IMB) are important targets for interventions promoting adherence to diabetes medications, according to a study published online March 5 in Diabetes Care.
Lindsay S. Mayberry, Ph.D., and Chandra Y. Osborn, Ph.D., M.P.H., both from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., conducted an interviewer-administered survey in 314 participants, along with an A1C test. The effects of diabetes medication adherence-related information, motivation, and behavioral skills were examined on medication adherence and the effect of medication adherence on A1C.
