Low medication adherence in patients with coronary heart disease increases mortality.
This study investigates if an intervention of medication review and counselling can improve patients' medication adherence and treatment results.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Coronary Heart Disease||Behavioral: Standard Treatment Behavioral: MI and Medication review||Not Applicable|
The study will investigate the effects of medication review and Motivational Interviewing (MI) on patients with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). Clinical pharmacists competent in MI and cardiology will conduct medication interviews and medication reviews at the outpatient clinic. The intervention will continue during 9 months, with interviews and reviews as needed.
Follow-up of results will take place 16 months after inclusion (corresponding to 4 months after the end of intervention).
The MI-Component will be quality assured by MITI 4.2-coding (Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity). The study will investigate effects on clinical outcomes, medication adherence, patients´ beliefs about medicines and quality of life.

Experimental: MI and Medication review
The intervention starts three months post-discharge after the standard treatment at the out-patients clinic. A medication review focused on cardiovascular drugs, and a counselling session with a clinical pharmacist using Motivational Interviewing (MI)-approach, and a follow-up phone call two weeks later. For patients with negative beliefs about medicines, three additional MI-sessions in clinic or by phone are planned together with the patient. Irrespective of beliefs the intervention ends with a second medication review and counselling session, which is coordinated with the 12-months post-discharge follow-up in primary care.

- Process measure: Beliefs about medicines - percent of patients per category [ Time Frame: 16 months ]Beliefs about medicines questionnaire (BMQ-S10), categories: accepting, ambivalent, neutral, skeptical. Also temporal cahnges in both Groups and Changes in each item of the subscales.
- Process measure: Intervention experienced by patients [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Qualitative interview study of 8-15 patients with negative beliefs about medicines at baseline. Analyzed with content analysis.
- Process measure: How did the intervention affect patients´overall experience of their follow-up care after CHD. [ Time Frame: 16 months, for the last 100 patients to be included. ]Open question: What is you opinion of the follow-up care after your heart disease?" Analysed with qualitative content analysis separetly for Control and intervention group patients.
- Health economic evaluation: Costs of intervention related to costs saved and Quality-adjusted Life years [ Time Frame: 16 months ]Quality adjusted life years estimated by the re-admissions and quality of Life using Euroqol EQ-5D-5L
