Abstract:
Purpose: A major purpose of the Program was to sponsor research advancing knowledge about the influence of patient-caregiver relationships on adherence and related ethical concerns. Based on the results of a competitive review process, we funded 11 proposals received in response to a call for proposals. Background: Researchers addressed issues pertaining to health care relationships and adherence, such as patient-clinician communication about various types of pain, decision-making and chronic illnesses, the use of computer-assisted devices for enhancing adherence to HIV/AIDS medications, use of faith-based organizations in caring for Latina women with mental illness, and a nurse intervention program for enhancing adherence to medication for depressed patients. The researchers were from nursing, medicine, sociology, psychology, and law. Approach: Strategies included assessing how interventions might improve patient outcomes related to post-operative pain control for patients receiving knee-replacement surgery. Other studies developed measures for patient trust in clinicians, assessed families' illness experiences, or explored ways of improving healthcare delivery for children with diabetes. Some studies used new technologies, such as conjoint analyses or computer-assisted devices, for understanding aspects of relationship-centered care and adherence. Major Points & Rationale: Outcomes included perceived need for behavioral health care, satisfaction with services, trust in physicians, and clinicians' perceptions of patients' adherence and pain management. The studies filled major gaps in empirical and analytical understanding of health care relationships and adherence. Conclusions: An important component of our Program was an analysis of the ethical implications of the 11 funded studies, taken individually and as a group. Results revealed strong ethical implications of each study, often related to target population or research methods. Cross-cutting themes included the importance of empowerment and justice for marginalized populations and of acknowledging the community contexts that patients bring to their encounters with practitioners.
