One of the most difficult problems of geriatric cardiology is the problem of adherence of elderly patients to the treatment process - usually long and complex.
The concept of “adherence” includes the clarity of the patient’s compliance with recommendations for medication and the patient’s interaction with the doctor, including a response to his psychological support. That is, adherence is an active voluntary joint with the physician participation of the patient in the process of optimizing his treatment in order to obtain a better therapeutic result.
