Abstract

Objective: Medication therapy management (MTM) has been found to reduce medication nonadherence, which is a signifi- cant contributor to negative health outcomes. However, many individuals eligible for MTM are not aware of it and do not believe the service to be beneficial. Thus, the objective of this study was to compare changes in patients' perceptions of and enrollment in MTM between two different educational interventions (mailed brochure vs. live event education).
