According to the World Health Organization, about 50% of patients with chronic diseases do not strictly follow their prescriptions of long-term treatments in developed countries. These lacks of adherence and persistence can be major barriers to treatment efficiency in real world, for many chronic diseases. The generic ACCEptance by the Patients of their Treatment (ACCEPT) questionnaire was developed to measure patients’ acceptance of their medication. The objective of this study was to evaluate for a variety of chronic diseases the level of patients’ acceptance of their medication in real life using Carenity, a patient online community.
