Abstract: background: non-adherence to treatment is an important and often unrecognized risk factor that contributes to reduced control of blood pressure (bp). objective: to determine the association between treatment adherence measured by a validated version in portuguese of the 8-item morisky medication adherence scale (mmas-8) and bp control in hypertensive outpatients. methods: a cross-sectional study was carried out with hypertensive patients older than 18 years, treated at six of the family health strategy units in maceió (al), through interviews and home blood pressure measurements, between january and april 2011. adherence was determined by mmas-8 version translated for this study. the patients were considered adherent when they had a score equal to 8 at the mmas-8. results: the prevalence of adherence among the 223 patients studied was 19.7%, while 34% had controlled bp (> 140/90 mmhg). the average adherence value according to the mmas-8 was 5.8 (± 1.8). adherent patients showed to be more prone (or = 6.1, ci [95%] = 3.0 to 12.0) to have blood pressure control than those who reached mean (6 to <8) or low values (<6) at the adherence score. the portuguese version of mmas-8 was showed a significant association with bp control (p = 0.000). conclusion: the diagnosis of non-adherent behavior through the application of mmas-8 in patients using of antihypertensive medications was predictive of elevated systolic and diastolic bp.

Abstract: O presente trabalho visa compreender e analisar os significados das intera es entre profissionais de saúde (médicos e farmacêuticos) e idosos portadores de condi es cr nicas de saúde, na perspectiva dos usuários de medicamentos. O estudo foi realizado em uma unidade de saúde do Município de Ribeir o Preto, em agosto de 2003. Esta análise secundária teve como referencial o Interacionismo Simbólico e os dados das entrevistas gravadas, no trabalho original, foram submetidos à análise temática de conteúdo. Os temas que emergiram demonstram que a ambivalência simbólica das intera es permite diversas interpreta es que v o desde o distanciamento e falta de confian a até a liberdade de express o e o diálogo com o profissional de saúde. Compreender tais intera es pode ser fundamental para melhorar o entendimento do processo saúde-doen a, otimizar os cuidados à saúde e garantir o uso racional dos medicamentos.

Abstract: the greater prevalence of chronic diseases like systemic arterial hypertension among elderly people results in an increase of drugs use. therefore, the incidence of a lot of drug-related problems (drp) rises, and this leads to many health problems in the population. based on literature, authors emphasize the multidisciplinary team approach (physicians, nurses and pharmacists) to activities directly related with pharmacotherapy for hypertension, granting elderly persons a better comprehension about taking care of their own health, to reduce drp and achieve satisfactory adherence.

Abstract: in brazil, millions of prescriptions do not follow the legal requirements necessary to guarantee the correct dispensing and administration of medication. this multi-centre exploratory study aimed to analyze the appropriateness of prescriptions at four brazilian hospitals and to identify possible errors caused by inadequacies. the sample consisted of 864 prescriptions obtained at hospital medical clinics in january 2003. data was collected by three nurse researchers during one week using a standard data sheet that included items about: the type of prescription; legibility; completeness; use of abbreviations; existence of changes and erasures. there were statistically significant differences between incomplete electronic prescriptions at hospital a, and handwritten ones from hospitals c (?2 = 12.703 and p < 0.001) and d (?2 = 14.074 and p < 0.001). abbreviations were used in more than 80% of prescriptions at hospitals b, c and d. changes were found in prescriptions at all hospitals, with higher levels at hospitals b (35.2%) and a (25.3%). this study identified a range of vulnerable points in the prescription phase of the medication system at the hospitals. physicians, pharmacists and nurses should therefore jointly propose strategies to avoid these prescription errors.

Abstract: leg length discrepancy (lld) affects about 70% of the general population, and can be either structural - when the difference occurs in bone structures - or functional, because of mechanical changes at the lower limbs. the discrepancy can be also classified by its magnitude into mild, intermediate, or severe. mild lld has been particularly associated with stress fracture, low back pain and osteoarthritis, and when the discrepancy occurs in subjects whose mechanical loads are increased by their professional, daily or recreational activities, these orthopaedic changes may appear early and severely. the aim of this study was to analyze and compare ground reaction force (grf) during gait in runners with and without mild lld. results showed that subjects with mild lld of 0.5 to 2.0 cm presented higher values of minimum vertical grf (0.57 ± 0.07 bw) at the shorter limb compared to the longer limb (0.56 ± 0.08 bw) therefore, subjects with mild lld adopt compensatory mechanisms that cause additional overloads to the musculoskeletal system in order to promote a symmetrical gait pattern as showed by the values of absolute symmetric index of vertical and horizontal grf variables.
