Primary Outcome Measures:
  • adherence to immunosuppressives [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Adherence will be defined by three methods: The BAASIS instrument, blood assay of the immunosuppressives and collateral report. A patients is classified as non-adherent if he/she is considered non-adherent by any of the methods.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Risk factors to non-adherence [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Risk factors to non-adherence are socio-economic; patient-related; condition/disease-related; therapy/treatment-related;healthcare system/healthcare worker-related factors
