TI  - Self-Reported Rates of Adherence to Aspirin Prescribed as an Antithrombotic
      Therapy Following Postoperative Total Joint Replacement.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Patients may not understand the importance of medication adherence
      when discharged with aspirin (ASA) as an anticoagulant for venous thromboembolism
      (VTE) prophylaxis after joint replacement surgery. PURPOSE: The purpose of this
      study was to examine self-reported rates of adherence to postoperative use of ASA
      for VTE prophylaxis. METHODS: This was an exploratory, descriptive study using a 
      convenience sample of 99 participants. Adherence was measured with a 4-question
      self-reporting tool. RESULTS: Thirty-seven percent were male and 76% were
      Caucasian, and median age was 63 years. Ninety-two percent had the dosage
      correct, 76% knew how long to take the medication, and 100% of the sample was
      still taking the ASA; 40% had forgotten to take 1 or more doses of the
      medication. No associations were noted. Overall compliance was 44%. CONCLUSION: A
      significant number missed 1 or more doses. This is an opportunity for nurses to
      work with patients on innovative ways to improve adherence.
