Adherence and Self-Management in Pediatric Populations addresses the contemporary theories, evidence-based assessments, and intervention approaches for common pediatric chronic illnesses. An introductory chapter summarizes the state of the field and provides a general foundation in adherence and self-management. Subsequent chapters focus on specific diseases, ensuring that the scope of knowledge contained therein is current and thorough, especially as the assessments and interventions can be specific to each disease. Case examples are included within each chapter to illustrate the application of these approaches. The book ends with an emerging areas chapter to illuminate the future of adherence science and clinical work.

This book will be extremely helpful to professionals beginning to treat youth with suboptimal adherence or for those who conduct adherence research. Experts in the field will benefit from the synthesized literature to aid in clinical decision-making and advancing adherence science.
