Patient noncompliance with treatment regime undermines the effectiveness of medical care, resulting in an unpredictable progression of the primary disease and a greater likelihood of complications.
Hemodialysis patients are well suited for studying noncompliance because their treatment is prolonged and intensive, and medical regimens are clear cut and easily determined with objective measures.
Moreover, noncompliant behavior by these patients not only endangers their life in the long run, but also results in negative effects within a day or two.
Despite severe consequences, noncompliance with their medical regimen is the norm for dialysis patients rather than the exception.
