Abstract

The purpose of this article is to highlight the importance for physiotherapists of pa ent adherence to treatment in bronchiectasis. This review provides evidence that adherence is important in bronchiectasis as it is low and affects health outcomes. We also show that there are a number of potenially modifiable factors that affect adherence that could be targeted through adherence interventions. The most effective methods of measuring adherence or interventions to enhance adherence are not known for bronchiectasis. Therefore, future research should focus on developing accurate and simple methods of adherence measurement for bronchiectasis that could be used in clinical practice, as well as, developing interventions to enhance adherence that are theoretically derived and able to be implemented as part of routine clinical practice.
