The effect of providing feedback on inhaler technique and adherence from an electronic audio recording device, INCA?, in a community pharmacy setting: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial.
RYDER, SHEILA; REILLY, RICHARD; BOLAND, FRANCIS; RAPCAN, VILIAM; D'ARCY, SHONA
Background: Poor adherence to inhaled medication may lead to inadequate symptom control in patients with respiratory disease. In practice it can be difficul t to identify poor adherence. We designed an acoustic recording device, the INCA? (INhaler Compliance Ass essment) device, which, when attached to an inhaler, identifies and records the time and technique of inhale r use, thereby providing objective longitudinal data on an individual ? s adherence to inhaled medication. This study will test the hypothesis that providing objective, personalised, visual feedback on adherence to patients in combination with a tailored educational intervention in a community pharmacy se tting, improves adherence more effectively than education alone.
