Medication adherence is an important challenge when treating psoriasis that requires a long-term management to induce and maintain clinical remission. Low adherence to therapies in psoriasis decreases treatment outcomes and increases the total healthcare costs. A majority of treatment failures may also be attributed to poor adherence to medications.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of adherence and to identify specific factors, which can impact medication adherence in patients with psoriasis.
