Numerous factors contribute to non-adherence including high-pill burden, forgetfulness and stigma associated with receiving treatment for chronic conditions. Observia, an organisation focused on E-health solutions, has developed a model known as SPUR for assessing patient adherence holistically. The UK arm of this study will focus on evaluating adults living with Type 2 Diabetes and other chronic co-morbidities using the SPUR model to assess medication non-adherence vs an objective measure of adherence known as medication refill to validate the holistic tool. The assessment will extend to secondary care with a retrospective and prospective evaluation of any potential relationship between the SPUR results of non-adherence and patient admission/re-admission to secondary care.
