Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Lack of medication adherence among adults in California
by Rocha, Gabriel J., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 53; 1520922
Abstract (Summary)

In 2009, nearly one in every ten adults in California reported that they delayed or did not get a medication that a doctor prescribed. Of those adults who either delayed or did not get a medication as their doctor prescribed, about half reported cost or lack of insurance was a reason why. This study looked at reasons for failure to obtain prescribed medication using data from the California Health Interview Survey.
