Predictors of medication nonadherence in patients with SLE in Sichuan

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and predictors of medication nonadherence among patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in Sichuan.

A cross-sectional investigation was performed. Participants were recruited by consecutive sampling from the Rheumatic Clinic of a university hospital between June and September 2016. Patients’ self-reported medication adherence was assessed by the eight-item Morisky Medication Adherence Scale. Additional surveys included patients’ demographics, and clinical and treatment characteristics. Logistic regression analysis was used to identify the predictors of medication nonadherence.
