Compliance and control of diabetes in a family practice setting, Saudi Arabia
Khattab, M.S. ( 1999 )

This study aimed to identify some determinants of compliance with diet, anti-diabetic drugs and the appointment system amongst diabetic patients [n = 294] attending a family practice setting. The results showed that good compliance with diet was significantly higher among males [P = 0.01] and those with good diabetic control [P = 0.01], while good compliance with appointment systems was significantly associated with type II diabetes [P < 0.01] and good care [P < 0.01]. Compliance with drugs showed no significant association with any of the studied determinants [P > 0.05]. When multiple regression analysis was applied, the degree of control of diabetes, its duration and the total score of care were the only predictors of the three aspects of compliance [P < 0.05]

Compliance and knowledge of hypertensive patients attending PHC centres in AL-Khobar, Saudi Arabia
Al Sowielem, L.S.; El Zubier, A.G. ( 1998 )

The compliance of hypertensive patients and patients' knowledge and misconceptions about hypertension were investigated in a cross-sectional study of all hypertensive patients [190] attending four primary health care centres in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia. The mean age was 49.9 +/- 11.7 years. The overall compliance rate was 34.2%; the rate was lower in those aged < 55 years than older patients [26.2% versus 48.5%; P < 0.001]. It was also lower among educated than illiterate patients [30.4% and 38.1% respectively; P < 0.001]. About 44% of patients thought that they should stop drug treatment once they achieved blood pressure control and 66.3% believed that emotional stress was the most important etiological factor in hypertension. The findings indicate that there is a clear need for health education of hypertensive patients

Compliance of surgeons and nurses in scrubbing time before surgery
Rababa'h, Taha A. ( 1998 )

This study was carried out to investigate the compliance of surgeons and nurses in performing sufficiently long scrubbing in two hospitals of the Royal Medical Services of the Jordanian Army. Fifty subjects [30 surgeons and 20 nurses] were examined. It was found that none of the subjects complied with the rules concerning scrubbing technique and scrubbing time. The average time for each subject was about 1.5 minutes. Student t-test showed that there was no significant difference [t = 0.897; P > 0.1] in the mean scrubbing time between surgeons and nurses

Compliance with antituberculosis drugs among tuberculosis patients in Alexandria, Egypt
Gad, Ashry; Mandil, Ahmed M.A.; Sherif, Aida A.R.; Gad, Zahira M.; Sallam, Sunny ( 1997 )

Tuberculosis is an important reemerging disease with increasing global morbidity and mortality. Tuberculosis control is hindered by patient noncompliance with treatment regimens. To study compliance to antituberculosis drug regimens, 172 patients diagnosed with tuberculosis during the first three months of 1995 were investigated. The patients were interviewed at their homes during July and August 1995. More than one-third [34.9%] of the patients were not adhering to the antituberculosis drug regimen. Factors increasing drug compliance included: disease symptoms, knowledge about the disease, family history of tuberculosis and hospitalization. More information about the disease and the importance of compliance should be provided to tuberculosis patients at the time of diagnosis and initiation of therapy. Supervision of drug administration by health care personnel is stressed

Compliance with good practice in prescription writing at outpatient clinics in Saudi Arabia
Irshaid, Y.M.; Al Homrany, M.; Hamdi, A.A.; Adjepon Yamoah, K.K.; Mahfouz, A.A. ( 2005 )

A sample of prescription orders received from outpatient departments by a hospital pharmacy in Asir, Saudi Arabia, were analysed over 1 year for the essential elements of prescriptions. The prescriber's name, address and signature were on 83.3%, 9.6% and 81.9% of prescriptions respectively. The patient's name, age and sex were on 94.6%, 77.3% and 51.3%. No prescription contained the patient's address and weight. Generic drug names were used in only 15.1% and strength of medication and dose units were included in 26.6% and 55.6% of prescriptions. Most prescriptions [94.0%] had no quantity indicated and had only partial instructions for patient use [90.7%]; the diagnosis was included in about two-thirds. The prescriber's handwriting was illegible in 64.3% of prescriptions. Measures to improve the situation are suggested

Compliance with haemodialysis practice guidelines in Egypt
Ahmed, A.M.A.; Allam, M.F.; Habil, E.S.; Metwally, A.M.; Ibrahiem, N.A.; Radwan, M.; El Gaafary, M.M.; Gadallah, M.A. ( 2013 )

Evidence- and consensus-based clinical practice guidelines for haemodialysis have recently been developed in Egypt. This study aimed to measure compliance with the guidelines in a sample of 16 government hospitals in Cairo and Giza governorates. Each haemodialysis unit was visited to assess the haemodialysis unit and patient care practices for all patients under dialysis at the time of the visit. The mean percentage compliance with haemodialysis guidelines among all study hospitals was 59.3% [SD 11.2%] overall. Within the 5 separate domains, compliance was: 58.8% [SD 12.4%] for personnel, 68.5% [SD 16.0%] for patient care practices, 61.3% [SD 15.4%] for infection prevention and control, 51.5% [SD 18.2%] for the facility and 56.5% [SD 7.1%] for documentation/ records. There were no statistically significant differences between Cairo and Giza governorates except for facility measures which were slightly better in Giza. Overall, compliance with the developed practice guidelines for haemodialysis in Egypt was not satisfactory and was not uniform across facilities
