PEREZ ROSABAL, Elsa; SOLER SANCHEZ, Yudmila María  y  MORALES ORTIZ, Leyanet. Therapeutic adherence and beliefs about health in hypertensive patients. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.3-9. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive, quantitative and cross-sectional study of 45 patients with hypertension, belonging to "21 Mayo" doctor's office from Media Luna municipality, Granma province was carried out from September, 2013 to May, 2014, with the aim of determining the therapeutic adherence and beliefs about their health in the affected patients. Patients with partial adherence to the treatment, low perceived susceptibility and mean perceived severity when facing the complications of hypertension; those interviewed with benefits in their therapy who found many barriers to fulfil their doctor's indications prevailed. The difficulties presented in the adhesion to the treatment were in correspondence to the susceptibility and severity perceived when the complications of the mentioned disorder were present, as well as with the benefits and barriers of the antihypertensive treatment

Palabras clave : therapeutic adherence; health beliefs; hypertension; primary health care.
