Effect of drug reminder packaging on medication adherence: a systematic literature review

02 April 2014

Researchers at the University of Basel in Switzerland performed a systematic literature review to reveal the effect of drug reminder packaging on medication adherence, to identify research gaps and to make suggestions for future research. New information was extracted from the 30 studies included and several studies had statistically significant and relevant results for adherence and clinical outcomes with drug reminder packaging. However, firm conclusions cannot be given for the effect of drug reminder packaging on adherence, mainly because the studies lack methodological quality and the information was incomplete. A provisional article about the research is published in Systematic Reviews.
