Compliance and concordance

When medicines are administered in hospital there is a high degree of certainty that medicines are given to or taken by the patient for whom they are intended. In the community, however, such certainties do not exist, and one of the major drawbacks of our reliance on pharmacotherapy in treating ill health is that, either intentionally or unintentionally, a high proportion of patients do not take or use their medicines in the way that is intended.
