We compared compliance behavior in acute and chronic patients visiting the Emergency Department (E.D.) of an acute care, private hospital; compliance was operationalized as scheduling or keeping a follow-up referral appointment originating in the Emergency Department.
The purposes of the study were to assess demographic and illness experience differences among patients and to assess the relative impact of a Health Belief Model Intervention on compliance in acute versus chronic patients.
