¿Sabía que las enfermedades crónicas son la principal causa de mortalidad y discapacidad a nivel mundial? Se ha preguntado ¿por qué sucede esto? A través de este curso descubrirá que estas consecuencias se pueden prevenir si pacientes, cuidadores y profesionales de la salud, logran comprender las barreras y limitaciones que tiene el paciente para responder positivamente con el tratamiento farmacológico y no farmacológico de dichas enfermedades. Los estudiantes reconocerán que los pacientes con enfermedad crónica que tienen una adherencia positiva al tratamiento, lograran tener cambios en su estilo de vida que generarán los resultados preventivos y terapéuticos deseados.
Al finalizar el curso aprenderá a :
- Reconocer los factores psicosociales que son relevantes para la adherencia al tratamiento farmacológico y no farmacológico.
- Valorar estrategias que faciliten la vinculación activa con el tratamiento farmacológico y no farmacológico.
