Dermatology patients’ representations about adherence in relation to their doctors’ views : a combined qualitative-quantitative approach

English abstract

The aim of our study was to identify representations about patient adherence among dermatologists (N=40) and their patients (N=153) and to explore the differences between these representations. A combined qualitative-quantitative methodology was applied where patients’ representations were measured by a questionnaire, which was created from the most typical content categories given in interviews with doctors. Dermatologists identified good doctorpatient relationship, information from the doctor, and background information as the most important determinants of adherence. In patients’ rankings, information from the doctor, understandable communication, and patient personality received the highest scores. Elderly patients evaluated good doctor-patient relationship as more important (r=0.446, p<0.01). There was a sharp difference between physician and patient groups in the perceived importance of background information and the financial state of the patient. Further analysis, with multidimensional scaling, arranged patients’ results into four content groups which helped to reveal the deeper structure of the representations. This structural analysis pointed out the importance of patients’ views about their own role in the doctor-patient relationship. Our results may contribute to the evidence-based confirmation that transparency of views and expectations in doctor-patient communication is a basic determinant of successful adherence.
