The ultimate aim of any prescribed medical therapy is to achieve certain desired outcomes in the patients concerned. However, despite all the best intention and efforts on the part of the health care professionals, those outcomes might not be achievable if the patients are non-compliant. Compliance is patient’s behaviors in terms of taking medication, following diets, or executing lifestyle changes that coincide with health care providers’ recommendations for health and medical advice.
