The ability of administering a drug in accordance to the medical prescription can be summarised in the concept of adherence. Several studies have shown that chronic patients, on average, do not administer more than 50% of the prescribed doses. By understanding the reasons why patients are so poorly adherent, therapeutic treatments could be better adapted and the risk of treatment failure could be reduced.

The social pharmacy research group investigates the effect of cost containment strategies with an emphasis on patient and health professional presepctives.
