The lack of adherence to medication is a growing public health problem worldwide and is costing many patients their good health and healthcare systems billions of dollars. A new volume in theEmerging Issues in Analytical Chemistryseries,Analytical Chemistry for Assessing Medication Adherenceintroduces the concept of medication adherence/compliance and reports international perspectives on medication adherence while highlighting its importance. It then describes the opportunities for analytical chemistry to assess medication adherence and thereby provide an evidence base for clinicians to improve patient health outcomes. The authors highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each of the analytical techniques cited in addition to categorizing the findings in terms of the biological samples used to assess adherence and identifying methods to extract biological samples prior to analysis. The final chapter provides the authors perspective in this area, emphasising the importance of medication optimization for individual patients.

TheEmerging Issues in Analytical Chemistryseries is published in partnership with RTI International and edited by Brian F. Thomas. Please be sure to check out our other featured volumes:
