Community Pharmacy Consultant Bruce Kneeland speaks with Kevin DeMass, RPh, President of Apothecary Shoppe, Salt Lake City, UT, about how compliance packaging impacts medication adherence.

Bruce Kneeland: Are you doing convenience or compliance packaging?

Kevin DeMass, RPh: We do, we do. And that's a big point. If it's easier for that patient to take a medication in compliance packaging, whether it's in a dose pack, whether it's in a blister pack, whether it's in a roll, whether it's in a med box, if it helps you remember that at every morning with my cup of coffee or with my orange juice, these are the seven tablets that I need, that's what's going to get it down. If you forget and all of those medications are back in the medicine cabinet, you might miss Monday, you might miss Thursday, you might miss Friday, and then remember again on Saturday. If it's out of sight it's out of mind. Compliance packaging makes it so easy. We have it where you can take your day's worth, put it in your pocket, put it in your briefcase, and away you go.
