Antibacterial therapy of respiratory tract infections from the position of patients compliance
We discuss the problem of patient compliance (adherence to treatment) with antibacterial therapy of respiratory infections. It is emphasized that the high compliance significantly increases efficacy of treatment. Experimental methods for compliance assessment are presented; we describe the main errors associated with noncompliance of antibacterial therapy, and factors affecting the compliance. Methods of compliance improvement during the course of antibiotic therapy (reduction of number of intakes of antibiotics, short courses, convenient form of drug, etc.) are presented.
