Abstract

Adherence to chronic therapy is a key determinant of patient health outcomes in chronic disease. However, only about 50 % of patients adhere to chronic therapy. One of the challenges in promoting adherence is having an accurate understanding of adherence rates and the factors that contribute to non-adherence. There are many measures available to assess patient medication adherence.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 16. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 May 2017.
All research outputs
#1,076,134
of 14,123,968 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy
#33
of 670 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#16,003
of 184,261 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy
#1
of 26 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,123,968 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 670 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.7. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 184,261 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 26 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its contemporaries.
