Self-Reported Treatment Adherence & Barriers Assessment
This measure should be filled out by the patient independently. It will assess the frequency and duration of each treatment they are performing, using non-judgmental language. Importantly, it asks the patient what is “getting in the way” of doing their treatments (their barrier).
On the left-hand side of the measure, you will see a comprehensive list of treatments that may be prescribed for CF patients. Along the top, you will see a list of the most commonly identified barriers to adherence. The patient should use the worksheet to highlight 1-2 current adherence barriers.
This should be kept in the patient’s chart or EMR to track their progress. This tool has been effective in uncovering barriers to adherence that the team was not aware of.
