Jan 7th, 2016

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Poor adherence to psychotropic medication is a significant issue for patients with a disease such as HIV or bipolar disorder. The effectiveness of medication treatment is limited by high rates of medication non-adherence among this population. Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based intervention that has been efficacious in promoting behavioral health regimens and treatment recommendations, including medication adherence. By using a patient-centered approach, Motivational Interviewing has been shown to enhance patients' insight and attitudes toward treatment. The knowledge can help mental health nurses on how to use Motivational Interviewing with bipolar patients to address ambivalence and improve adherence to psychotropic medication regimens.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
