Patient education and compliance
Alma is a challenging patient and it’s important that we approach this situation collaboratively in order to ensure compliance. This means engaging other stakeholders such as the patient’s family members, healthcare providers, and community support services. It is possible to create a culture of mutual understanding and respect among all involved in the conversation which will encourage greater patient compliance.
Collaborating allows us, as caregivers, to find any possible gaps in our plans and make adjustments accordingly. For example, if there are social factors affecting Alma’s ability to comply with treatment recommendations (e.g., lack of family support), then by working together we can develop strategies for addressing these issues that may improve compliance over time. For Alma to be successful, it is essential that all parties work together.
