The association of angiotensin receptor blocker-based combination therapy with persistence and adherence in newly treated, uncomplicated hypertensive patients.

Patient Prefer Adherence 2019 31;13:241-248. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

College of Pharmacy and Research Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Seoul National University, Seoul, Republic of Korea,

Purpose: We compared treatment adherence and persistence during treatment with an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB)-based single pill combination (SPC) and free equivalent combination (FEC) and between SPCs of an ARB with a thiazide diuretic (TD) and an ARB with a calcium channel blocker (CCB) as initial treatment in uncomplicated hypertensive patients who received pre-packaged medications from the pharmacy.

Patients And Methods: Uncomplicated hypertensive patients who started combination treatment consisting of ARB and either TD or CCB were identified from a Korean national claims database. We used propensity score matching to construct two pairs of cohorts: SPC and FEC cohorts (20,175 patients per cohort) and SPC cohorts of ARB + TD and ARB + CCB (45,253 patients per cohort).

Patient Prefer Adherence 2019 14;13:145-150. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Unit, ASST Pini-CTO, Milan, Italy.

Dual bronchodilation with long-acting beta-2 agonists and muscarinic antagonists is recommended in patients with severe to very severe COPD. Among dual bronchodilator combinations, indacaterol/glycopyrronium combination (IGC) received evidence of higher efficacy and good safety compared with monotherapy with either drug as well as with tiotropium. In randomized controlled trials, the primary outcome is usually the change in mean FEV resulting from treatment. Read More

Achievement of patients' preferences for participation in oncological symptom management and its association with perceived quality of care.

Patient Prefer Adherence 2019 31;13:83-90. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

School of Nursing and Midwifery, Faculty of Health, Deakin University, Geelong, VIC, Australia,

Purpose: The subjectivity of symptom experience and the recognized role of patients in symptom management highlight the need to understand cancer patients' participation in symptom management and to identify the associations between patient participation and quality of care. However, research on patient participation has focused mostly on general healthcare activities, rather than symptom management, especially in cancer-care settings. This study aimed to compare the congruence between cancer patients' preference for and actual perceived experience of participation in symptom management and identify the relationships between preferred and actual patient participation and perceived quality of care.
