Summary or Abstract : As medical technology has advanced and the age structure of the population has increased, much of the focus of medical therapy has shifted from treating acute symptomatic illness to prevention and management of chronic illness. Medications play a central role in the management of many chronic conditions (such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, non-insulin dependent diabetes, and osteoporosis) that are risk factors for a variety of adverse disease outcomes. Non-compliance to medications has been shown to be a significant impediment to more comprehensive control of these conditions and avoidance of associated adverse health outcomes, and remains poorly understood. Beliefs regarding the potential benefits and harms associated with medications may be an important determinant of medication non-adherence. The relationship between these beliefs and adherence, adjusted for the perceived threat of the target condition and other variables that influence adherence, has not been explicated. The aims of this cross-sectional study of persons prescribed oral bisphosphonate medication to prevent osteoporotic fractures are as follows. (1) Estimate the associations of perceived necessity of and concerns about medication and three aspects of medication use behavior (a) Non-persistence due to side effects (b) Non-persistence for reasons other than side effects (c) Non-compliance (missed doses) (2) Estimate associations of perceived need for medication with; (a) Susceptibility to and severity of fractures; (b) Patient-provider relationship quality; (c) Objective indicators of fracture risk; (3) Estimate the associations of patient-provider relationship quality and self-reported adherence (a) Directly; (b) Indirectly through other variables..
