Development of a Psychoeducational Program Designed to Improve Medication Adherence in a Community Mental Health Setting

16 December 2011


The purpose of this study was to address the well-established problem of poor medication adherence within mental health settings by designing a psychoeducational program to educate clients about the medications they are prescribed. The program was intended to be implemented within a community mental health setting and was scheduled to be facilitated by pharmacists affiliated with this agency. Assessments were also developed to evaluate the effectiveness of the new program. However, after an absence of participant involvement, a focus group was established to generate solutions to the lack of client attendance problem. Suggestions were generated for future program designs that might mitigate the observed problems.
