“Self-reported adherence is usually validated with patient surveillance or secondary sources. Because of these difficulties, our study measured adherence by use of patient questionnaires, a method that was previously validated in pediatric renal transplant patients. Recent data have demonstrated, however, that reported adherence is frequently higher than real adherence and may have little statistical value,” the researchers wrote in the study. “Given the tight distribution of the reported adherence and the negative skew found in this study, it is likely that our measured reported adherence was similarly affected and has contributed to clouding any possible correlation between adherence and outcome.”
