Two in Three Cancer Patients are Non-Adherent with Their Medications, According to Kantar Health Research
Date:5/21/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Two-thirds of patients who have been diagnosed with leukemia, melanoma or non-small cell lung cancer reported that they engage in at least one type of non-adherent behavior in their medicine use, according to new findings from the National Health and Wellness Survey (NHWS), conducted by Kantar Health. The research will be presented today at the 18th Annual International Meeting for ISPOR (International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research) in New Orleans.

“Cancer treatment is rapidly evolving with the emergence of highly effective oral targeted therapies, which has increased the importance of patients being adherent with their medications,” said Marco DiBonaventura, Ph.D., vice president, health outcomes, with Kantar Health. “When looking at adherence from a patient’s perspective among those with a type of cancer where oral therapies are the standard of care, we found that a significant number engaged in some type of non-adherent behavior—such as forgetting to take their medicine or not taking their medication as directed—which resulted in worse outcomes and higher healthcare resource use.”

Cancer patients who were non-adherent had significantly worse mental health status, and tended to have been hospitalized and visited the emergency room more often than adherent patients.

“The results of our survey suggest that non-adherence among these cancer patients may result in mental health impairments and possibly greater resource use,” DiBonaventura said. “As more oral targeted therapies emerge in oncology, pharma companies should emphasize improving adherence rates to maximize the benefits of these treatments for patients and to reduce societal costs.”
