Sunlows feb2014

  1. 1. FRIDAY FEBRUARY 28TH 2-4PM Financial incentives have been considered as a notion to improve medication adherence in patients with severe mental illnesses. There has been a lively debate with strong opinions expressed in favour and against using such incentives. The presentation will summarise the argument about the use of financial incentives; present views of stakeholders obtained in a focus group study; and show the results of a randomised controlled trial (FIAT) testing the effectiveness of financial incentives to improve adherence to antipsychotic maintenance medication over a one year period. In the trial, incentives led to a significant improvement in medication adherence. Implications for practice will be discussed.
