Macdonald MT, Heilemann MV, MacKinnon NJ, et al. Qual Health Res. 2014;24:536-550.
This qualitative study characterized inpatients' roles in taking medications from both the patient and nursing perspectives. Researchers found significant barriers to engaging patients in medication administration including inpatients' mental status and nurses' time limitations. Previous recommendations to engage patients in their own care have not addressed these factors.
