Unintentional Prescription Drug Non-Compliance for Financial Reasons in Families with A Child with A Limiting Health Condition
Social Work in Health Care
Area probability sampling via U.S. postal addresses was used to select households from seven high poverty U.S. metropolitan areas. In person and telephone interviews with one adult household member were used to determine the odds of delaying or failing to fill a needed prescription for families with a child member with a limiting health condition. Logistic models indicate families with a child with a limiting health condition are 1.57 times more likely to delay or fail to fill a needed prescription, and families with more than one child with a limiting condition are 1.85 times more likely. Implications are set forth.
