Abstract

SA, Julio de Souza; GARCIA, Lucas França; BERNUCI, Marcelo Picinin  and  YAMAGUCHI, Mirian Ueda. Scientometrics on interventions used for adherence of hypertension and diabetes therapies. Einstein (São Paulo) [online]. 2020, vol.18, eAO4723.  Epub Dec 13, 2019. ISSN 1679-4508.  https://doi.org/10.31744/einstein_journal/2020ao4723.

Objective

To identify interventions aimed to improve adherence to medical and non-medical antihypertensive and antidiabetic therapy.

Methods

Scientometric study conducted in February and March 2018, based on data collected on PubMed ® and SciELO databases, using the following search terms: “interventions to improve adherence to diabetes therapy”, “interventions to improve adherence to hypertension therapy” and “interventions to improve adherence to therapy for hypertension and diabetes”.

Results

A total of 95 articles were selected. Scientific production increased as of 2009, with a higher number of studies published between 2015 and 2017. Most interventions described in literature were aimed at diabetic patients (46.31%). Face-to-face interventions were more common (46.31%), followed by telephone-based (31.58%) and digital (26.31%) interventions. North America stood out as the continent with the highest number of publications (68.42%), followed by Europe (14.74%). Most studies (63.16%) were based on a single type of intervention.

Conclusion

Traditional intervention methods were more widely used to promote adherence to antihypertensive and antidiabetic therapy; digital technology emerged as a trend in interventions aimed to improve hypertension and diabetes-related health behaviors.
