Putnam, Dana E.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n1 p191-94 Feb 1994
Evaluated commitment-based intervention for improvement of adherence to 10-day antibiotic regimen. Subjects were 60 college students. Experimental subjects made verbal and written commitments for adherence and completed tasks designed to increase their investment in medication regimen. Controls performed similarly structured tasks unrelated to medical regimen. Adherence was significantly higher for experimental subjects than for controls. (Author/NB)
