Alberta seniors invited to participate in medication adherence study

December 14, 2016

The ACCESS Study is encouraging medication adherence in low income (less than $50,000 annual household income) Alberta seniors. ACCESS is a three-year study being conducted by Dr. Braden Manns and Dr. David Campbell at the University of Calgary.

The ACCESS team is investigating the impact of providing free preventive medications and/or a personalized education program. Participants must be over the age of 65 and have the chronic health conditions listed below.

Pharmacists are asked to help identify eligible patients and provide them with a brochure about the study. If you are interested in assisting with recruitment, please contact the ACCESS team at 1-844-310-0585 or accesstrial@ucalgary.ca. You will be sent a package containing posters, brochures, and a medication appendix of the covered drugs.
