Did your parents ever teach you about gluttony as a child? It’s one of the 7 deadly sins, you know. Thou shall not…um…be a glutton. I think that message was lost on me.
I’m currently on a clinical rotation that focuses mainly on diabetes management. As a project, we are going to be given a pillbox and fill it with 5 “medications,” aka candy, to last for a 14 days supply. Our adherence will be monitored weekly. The purpose is to simulate how difficult it is for patients to be adherent to their medications when they are on so many different medications, each with a different dosing and frequency.
Now I’m an adherence overachiever, so I’m going to go ahead and eat all my candy today =)
