NIH Seeks Input on Adherence Research

The National Institutes of Health is seeking advice from scientists, health professionals, patient advocates, and the general public on priorities for new research that will lead to improved adherence by people of all ages to medical and behavioral treatments and to healthy behaviors. 

The NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research and Adherence Research Network have issued a Request for Information (RFI) that asks for ideas for both short-term (1-2 years) and long-term (3-5 years) activities that NIH might support in the area of adherence research.   The activities should be targeted at specific gaps in the current state of the field and incorporate innovative approaches and methodologies. 

Responses will be accepted until May 25, 2010.  See the RFI for instructions for formatting and transmitting a response.
