Clinician Rating Scale: Medication Adherence Cheat Sheet (DRAFT) by [deleted]

Clinician Rating Scale; Medication Adherence

This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.

Introd­uction

The CRS uses an ordinal scale of 1–7 to quantify the clinic­ian’s assessment of the level of adherence shown by the patient. Higher numbers represent greater adherence. The CRS has been used in two controlled trials of ‘compl­iance therapy’, in which it demons­trated sensit­ivity in detecting differ­ences in outcomes among patients receiving compliance therapy versus non-sp­ecific counse­lling (Kemp et al, 1996; 1998).
