Adherence to Medical Cannabis Among Licensed Patients in Israel
Objectives:To evaluate adherence among Israeli patients who are licensed to use medical cannabis and to identify factors associated with adherence to medical cannabis. Methods: Ninety-five novice licensed patients were interviewed for this cross-sectional study. The questionnaire measured demographics, the perceived patient-physician relationship, and the level of patients’ active involvement in their healthcare. In addition, patients were queried about adverse effect(s) and about their overall satisfaction from this medical treatment. Our findings show a relatively high adherence rate for medical cannabis, as well as relative safety and high satisfaction among licensed patients.
