Abstract

One of the most common tests for evaluating of medication adherence – 4-question scale Moriscos-Green – is considered. Advantages (flexibility, conciseness) and disadvantages (insufficient sensitivity and specificity) of this test are presented. Disadvantages of 4-question version of the test were considered by the authors in development a new version of the scale (8-question) to assess medication adherence. The latest version of the Moriscos test has a high sensitivity in a fairly good specificity. The versatility of the new version of the test is confirmed by the studies. Preference in the use of this test is shown for screening assessment of medication adherence in patients with various chronic diseases. Besides the use of 8-question Moriscos scale is proved as a reference in the development and validation of new questionnaires on adherence to therapy.
