The principal aim of the research is to
present the results of PETiT research, as well as to make
comprehensive analysis of patient’s adherence from their
Methods: The PETiT test (Personal Evaluations of
Transitions in Treatment) was used as research method
and was distributed through online communication
channels. A total of 479 surveys was satisfactory
completed in accordance with authors’ defined criteria.
Results: The research results are presented in a table
with appropriate descriptions. According to the research
results, the respondents are highly educated, display a
positive attitude and view of life, and they do not have
difficulties for daily activities and professional
obligations. Simultaneously, a considerable number of
respondents specified they were not adherent, although,
they expressed a positive attitude regarding the impact
of the drug.
Conclusion: The potential cause of the poor adherence
level may be an inadequate level of awareness and
education related to the adherence role and importance
to the outcome of treatment. Increased research and
analysis of the key factors influencing patient’s nonadherence are needed, especially those under the
influence of the patient.
