Low compliance to prescribed medical interventions is an ever present and complex problem, especially for patients with a chronic illness. With increasing numbers of medications shown to do more good than harm when taken as prescibed, low compliance is a major problem in health care. Relevant studies were retrieved through comprehensive searches of different database systems to enable a thorough assessment of the major issues in compliance to prescribed medical interventions.

Adherence to treatment of chronic diseases in pediatrics: a critical literature review

Patient adherence to medical treatment: a review of reviews
TLDR
There is a scarcity of comparative studies explicitly contrasting theoretical models or their components and the relative weight of these theories and the effective components in the interventions designed to improve adherence, need to be assessed in future studies.
The importance of integrating medication adherence into pharmacoeconomic analyses: the example of osteoporosis
TLDR
The importance of integrating medication compliance and persistence into pharmacoeconomic evaluations, using osteoporosis as an example, is emphasized, to estimate the cost–effectiveness of drug therapies in current community practice.
Improving treatment adherence in patients with rheumatoid arthritis: what are the options?
TLDR
Future studies involving the use of mobile technologies have shown promise in other chronic diseases and could prove useful for patients with RA, where educational and cognitive behavioral interventions have had disappointing results.
Improving Patient Adherence with Oral Chemotherapy

TLDR
Assessment of the prevalence and nature of non-compliance is difficult, but several determinant factors have been found to be associated with it and several factors are considered to increase the doctor's awareness of this problem.
Medication compliance: the patient's perspective.
TLDR
The literature supports the notion that patients evaluate medication based not only on its clinical effectiveness, but also how it affects all aspects of their lives, which should recognize the outcomes valued from the patient's perspective.
Patient compliance—an overview
TLDR
The major topic areas of compliance research are reviewed, focusing on measurement, extent, and determinants of non‐compliance.

TLDR
The traditional concept of compliance is outmoded in modern health care systems, where chronic illness and questioning patients predominate and the patient's role in medical decision making is critically absent.
The Meaning of Compliance: Patient Perspectives
TLDR
The patient's view is presented, using data from a study of 23 rural African Americans living with chronic health conditions in the southeastern United States, to suggest that patients and health professionals assume different definitions of compliance and have different treatment goals in mind.
[Importance of the physician-patient relation in patient compliance].
TLDR
A more comprehensive idea of "compliance" is suggested and stress is laid on the importance of communication and cooperation between doctor and patient, because these factors play a major role in the doctor-patient relationship.
Patient non-compliance with drug regimens: measurement, clinical correlates, economic impact.
TLDR
Practical points have only come to light with the use of electronic monitoring of compliance, which avoids the biases created by tablet counts and other methods that make it easy for patients to censor evidence for omitted doses.
