Maybe mothers just cannot nag as well as they used to, or maybe there are just a lot more children and adolescents these days afflicted with chronic physical illnesses who must maintain a sometimes demanding treatment regime to remain alive and functional. Specialists in pediatric treatment adherence from anthropology, pediatrics, psychology, and sociology consider historical foundations, conceptual models for clinical care and research, measurement issues, influences, and interventions. They conclude by summarizing recommendations to enhance practice, research, and training in the problem. The 20 studies are from an October 1998 conference at Case Western Reserve University.
