Adherence and Self-Management Special Interest Group

Mission Statement


The mission of the Society of Pediatric Psychology Adherence & Self-Management SIG is to foster professional collaboration and to further the field’s understanding and use of evidence-based approaches towards the assessment and promotion of regimen adherence among youth with a chronic medical condition and their families, in research and clinical care.

Goals


  • To assemble and disseminate research and evidence-based approaches to assessment and intervention for adherence via publications, presentations, and the development of shared databases.
  • To facilitate research and clinical collaborations by creating shared resources and providing opportunities for networking.
  • To develop and deliver training in empirically-based tools for assessing adherence and strategies for improving adherence.
  • To refine issues in the field of non-adherence (e.g., writing position statements, establishing best practice guidelines, devising a universal definition of adherence).
  • To provide mentorship to students and trainees in the field of pediatric medical regimen adherence.
