Purpose

This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is being issued by the NIH Adherence Network through the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) with participation from multiple NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices. This NOSI calls for research grant applications that address patient adherence to treatment and prevention regimens to promote health outcomes. Applications may address healthcare regimen initiation, implementation, and/or persistence by patients. Descriptive and intervention research may address adherence determinants at one or more levels of ecologic influence, including the patient, caregiver/family, provider, healthcare system, and community levels. The specific research interests of participating NIH Institutes and Centers are detailed within.

Background

Increased adherence to recommended treatment and prevention regimens is an area of the behavioral and social sciences that promises substantial improvements in public health as well as savings in healthcare costs. Poor adherence to healthcare regimens is common across many chronic illnesses and patient populations. This includes use of prescribed medications and many other recommended prevention, screening, treatment, monitoring, and health behavior regimens.

Current concepts of adherence are multidimensional. Adherence to a specific health care behavior (e.g., taking a medicine, deciding to follow a diet, or making dietary changes) involves three dimensions: initiation (i.e., starting the recommended regimen), implementation (i.e., executing the schedule), and persistence (i.e., length of time on regimen before any discontinuation). Each dimension of adherence may have unique determinants, and each may require distinct behavioral and social interventions.

Adherence behavior is dynamic with the potential to change over time. The dynamic nature of adherence underscores the need to improve routine monitoring of adherence to recommended healthcare regimens, to prompt the delivery of support interventions when needed.

The determinants of adherence and non-adherence span a broad ecologic spectrum. These range across characteristics of the illness, the health care regimen, individual and social influences, and successively larger structural influences related to health care provision and health economics. Multilevel adherence determinants invite a range of possible interventions that target individuals, families, caregivers, health-care providers, communities, and/or healthcare system factors. They also invite careful specification and assessment of the mechanisms of action when developing and testing adherence interventions.

The next generation of research to address these adherence challenges will benefit from close attention to scientific rigor. Studies should clearly define adherence, compliment self-reported measures with objective assessment of behavior, and address intervention mechanisms of action. Applications are encouraged to apply approaches and tools for assessment of behavioral mechanisms developed under the NIH Common Fund’s Science of Behavior Change (SOBC) Program (see https://osf.io/zp7b4).

Research Objectives

The objective of this NOSI is to encourage research grant applications that address patient adherence to treatment and prevention regimens to promote health outcomes. Applications may address healthcare regimen initiation, implementation, and/or persistence by patients. Descriptive and intervention research may address adherence determinants at one or more levels of ecologic influence, including the patient, caregiver/family, provider, healthcare system, and community levels.

Research projects that could be addressed in response to this NOSI include, but are not limited to, the following topics. Further Institute- and Center-specific topics subsequently follow.

  • Research to advance novel tools or improve existing approaches to monitor adherence and facilitate delivery of targeted interventions to improve adherence
  • Studies that identify competing behaviors, psychosocial concerns, and/or social issues that contribute to non-adherence and associated changes in health outcomes, to inform future interventions and science
  • Research to understand and address individual, social, and structural determinants of health contributing to inequities in adherence and associated health outcomes among NIH-designated health disparity populations, including those related to race, ethnicity, sexual and gender minority (SGM) status, rural residency, and socioeconomic status.
  • Research that prioritizes adherence intervention development and delivery for individuals who have demonstrated non-adherence or who may be at-risk for non-adherence
  • Research examining interventions designed to optimize adherence through caregivers, peers, or social support networks
  • Studies of adherence-promoting interventions that are delivered through technological tools, such as mobile health technologies and electronic health records
  • Research testing the efficacy of interventions at the health care provider or system level that may facilitate patient adherence
  • Interventions that test multi-level and multi-component interventions (e.g., at the individual, health care provider, and community level) to improve adherence behavior

National Institute on Aging (NIA)

NIA seeks research on interventions to promote adherence to medical and behavioral regimens aimed at promoting healthy aging in Stages I through IV of the translational intervention development pipeline, as defined by the NIH Stage Model. NIA applications under this FOA are expected to articulate their research aims using the NIH Stage Model framework, identifying the Stage(s) of research proposed. In addition, applications are encouraged to apply the experimental medicine approach, i.e. articulate or test a hypothesis to identify an intervention’s principles/mechanism(s) of action, as described by the NIH Science of Behavior Change Common Fund Program. Areas of interest include those that leverage current understanding of psychology of aging or of behavioral and social contexts relevant to aging to promote adherence to exercise, healthful eating, prescribed medications, stress-reducing and/or positive affect inducing behaviors, and medical regimens. Of particular interest is the development of scalable principle-driven interventions that are highly relevant to the needs and capacities of individuals as they age and interventions that incorporate behavioral economic principles and/or technological innovations; a geriatric focus on multiple chronic conditions which can be accompanied by polypharmacy; and adherence to screening, vaccination, and other preventive measures in older adults.

National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

NIMH has interest in adherence research in the context of mental health as well as HIV. Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult NIMH staff when developing plans for an application. All applications that propose clinical trials to test adherence strategies are required to follow the NIMH’s experimental therapeutics approach to intervention development and testing (see Support for Clinical Trials at NIMH) and must be submitted through one of several NIMH-specific clinical trials FOAs (below). NIMH is particularly interested in research on adherence interventions that support the NIMH Strategic Plan for Research.

Examples of NIMH-relevant research projects include but are not limited to the following:

  • Adherence interventions designed to improve mental health or HIV health outcomes, along with examination of change mechanisms.
  • Adherence interventions capitalizing on innovations in technology which are consistent with NOT-MH-18-031 and the NIMH Advisory Council report, Opportunities and Challenges of Developing Information Technologies on Behavioral and Social Science Clinical Research.
  • Applications that use existing patient-level data, such as electronic medical records and prescription refill or claim data, to support adherence.
  • Development and testing of predictive algorithms to identify those at risk for future non-adherence.
  • Pragmatic trials of adherence monitoring and support strategies that fit seamlessly into existing clinical practice.
  • Adherence approaches to reduce empirically documented disparities in care and outcomes for racial and ethnic minorities and other underserved groups.
  • Adherence interventions that support shared decision making and patient engagement.
  • Stepped interventions or differentiated care approaches that use adaptive designs and decision rules based on participant responses to tailor and modulate intervention strategies.
  • Approaches for effectively implementing and sustaining high-value adherence strategies.

Adherence strategies can target patients, providers, clinics, and healthcare and/or other service systems. NIMH encourages investigators to design their studies to maximize the likelihood that findings will meaningfully inform and be translated into practice, whether at the patient, clinic, system, and/or policy level. To the greatest extent possible, such research should be conducted in community practice and externally valid settings; involve research participants from highly generalizable target populations, including racially and ethnically diverse samples, individuals across the lifespan, and those with co-occurring conditions; and, utilize care providers and technologies that can be readily and widely implemented in routine care settings. NIMH encourages investigators to partner with public and private stakeholders. Such collaborations may help ensure findings are relevant, practical, and actionable.

National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) is interested in supporting research and interventions considering determinants from more than one domain or level of influence (see NIMHD Research Framework). Intervention design should be based on theories from minority health and health disparities science. Research must focus on one or more minority or health disparity population (African Americans/Blacks, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Asians, Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, underserved rural populations, and sexual and gender minority populations). Applications may include but are not limited to multi-disciplinary etiologic and intervention research projects in community settings that advance the understanding of the mechanisms, pathways, and processes related to adherence to health promotion behaviors (e.g., healthy eating, physical activity, safe infant sleep practices, etc.), preventive screening recommendations, medication or other medical treatment regimens, and/or chronic disease self-management strategies. Research may propose using available secondary data, health system data and/or collection of primary data. Projects focused on patient-clinician communications, shared decision making, or other interactions, processes or services that occur within healthcare settings are not a priority for this NOSI but should instead be submitted to PAR-20-310, Health Services Research on Minority Health and Health Disparities (R01 Clinical Trial Optional) or PAR-19-093, Leveraging Health Information Technology (Health IT) to Address Minority Health and Health Disparities (R01 Clinical Trial Optional).
