Key Interventions may include:
Patient Self-management: Support patients to take their TB medication dose as prescribed through customised SMS reminders
Dosing Clarity: Eliminate dosing confusion through the use of dosing instructions printed directly on the DAT packaging (or can printed on stickers placed directly on the packaging). Avoid printing leaflets for additional dosing instructions, as these can easily be lost or destroyed with time.
Non-adherent Trends: Review patients' dosing histories to identify non-adherent trends, for example festive periods when patient forget to take their medication, and identify strategies that can support patients to be ore adherent during these periods. For examples targeted messages (SMS) sent to patients during festive periods.
Escalation Strategy: Use dosing histories to identify non-adherent patients and escalate such patients to more intensive management care, this is referred to as patient differentiated care.
Customised Messaging: Send targeted educational (or motivational) messaging to groups of patients based on their adherence, risk factors, or stage of treatment .
