Supporting Patient Adherence: The Role of Education and Clinical Nurse Educators
Patients are ultimately responsible for adherence, but there are many ways to support their transition into specialized therapies. Fully 87% of HCPs believe patient education, coaching, and ongoing support is very important in navigating access to the variety of resources available. More than half of the HCPs surveyed say wellness and integrating therapy into daily life is the largest barrier to adherence.
There is great confidence in Clinical Nurse Educators, with 90% stating CNEs can provide effective and comprehensive support for patients starting on and adhering to specialty therapies. These situations demonstrate the versatility of CNEs as a resource, as support programs endeavor to deliver holistic care, providing support for access, cost, clinical, and emotional needs.
