The purpose of this study was to identify perceived benefits and barriers to treatment regimen adherence for adults with hypertension. The design used for this study includes descriptive correlational non-experimental methodology. The subjects included fifty-six adults receiving treatment for hypertension in community clinics of the Midwest. All subjects had diagnosed hypertension and were being treated with at least one anti-hypertensive medication. Respondents were asked to complete a questionnaire regarding adherence and beliefs about their hypertension treatment. Overall, adherence levels were high for prescribed regimens such as medication and continued care. Adherence levels for lifestyle regimens such as diet, exercise, alcohol moderation, and tobacco cessation, were much lower. The study addressed many of the possible benefits and barriers to treatment. Respondents in general felt that medication was the most effective treatment for their hypertension. Assisting patients with time management, good education, support and approachability can help overcome the barriers and maximize the benefits of treatment. A team approach in goal setting is the key to adherence and patient success.
