Feasibility of Incentives to Increase Adherence in High-Risk Children with Asthma

In the August 2019 edition of The Journal of Asthma, researchers sought to find if adherence incentives could be used for high-risk children to increase adherence to medication use. In a two-month study, researchers provided reminders, feedback, and cash incentives to the family and children to help with daily adherence in the first month. In the second month, no reminders, feedback, or incentives were given. During the first month, mean adherence was 80%, while in the second month it was 33%. The researchers concluded that adherence incentives “were acceptable and feasible in a high-risk cohort of children with asthma.”
