I am going to be doing a 10 min. teaching session with a client at my clinical rotation about medication non-compliance. The patient's diagnosis is a schizoaffective disorder, bi-polar type; polysubstance abuse; antisocial personality disorder. The client takes all his meds (Depakote, Haldol, Zyprexa, and Lovoxyl) while on the unit and dispenses them himself, however outside of the hospital, the client is very non-compliant and stated that he didn't need to take the drugs but takes them in the hospital because he has to.
My purpose of this session is to teach some things to the client about his non-compliance. But if he isn't going to take the meds outside of the hospital, what angle should I take for this??
I only had about 10 minutes to talk to him about why he doesn't take his meds outside and he says that he djust doesn't need to take them. He knows what exactly he's taking and what each drug does.
I just don't know what kind of teaching I can do to improve his compliance and how to implement it.
If anyone can help me, it would be so helpful because I'm in the dark right now.
Thanks in advance for the help!!!
