Medication non-adherence is a major problem in the United States today. Providers can help minimize the problem through patient education. By increasing patient knowledge of the importance of prescribed medications and ways to access prescriptions, perceptions regarding the need for medication and barriers to access may be changed. By changing perceptions through increased knowledge, medication non-adherence may be decreased and patient outcomes may be improved. Therefore, a project to increase patient knowledge about the importance of prescribed medications and ways to access prescriptions was implemented in Robstown, Texas. The project framework was Becker’s Health Belief Model. The target population included cognitively intact adult patients who were taking metformin and lisinopril (n=30). The project intervention was one-to-one instruction in English or Spanish, including a written synopsis of the information taught, and utilized pre-intervention and post-intervention questionnaires to measure knowledge. Findings showed a significant increase in scores on post-intervention questions compared to pre-intervention question scores (p < .005). This project has shown that patient education can increase knowledge about medications and barriers to accessing medications. By teaching their patients about the importance of medications, providers can help the patient better understand how that aspect of the plan of care will keep them well. In addition, increasing knowledge about how to access prescriptions will better equip the patient to adhere to the plan of care.
