Jocelyne Moisan is a full professor at the Faculty of Pharmacy at Laval University. She carries out her research activities in the Population Health and Optimal Health Practices Axis of the CHU Research Center of Québec-Université Laval. She uses methods of epidemiology, biostatistics, and pharmacoepidemiology to carry out her studies which focus on the description of the use of treatments in various populations, the factors associated with this use, the quality of this use, and the interventions aimed at improving it.
Study of the reasons for non-adherence to treatment
It is well known that many people do not take their medications as prescribed. Who has never skipped a dose or stopped treatment earlier than was recommended? Unfortunately, a treatment, whether it is a medicine, a diet or something else, is only effective if followed. It is important to know the reasons why some people do not adhere to their treatment, and why others adhere to it.
Identify ways to improve adherence to treatment
Once the factors that promote adherence and the barriers to the proper use of treatments have been identified, it is necessary to design appropriate interventions, implement them, and assess their impact.
