Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), due to their chronic and progressive nature, require lifelong treatment to relief and/or prevent inflammation and symptoms, obtaining mucosal healing at best. Therefore, adherence to treatment is an essential topic to address when treating patients with IBD. Nonetheless, adherence remains a common and complex issue in IBD care. Patient characteristics such as young age, male sex and employment has previously been verified as possible predictors of non-adherence. Additionally, evaluating adherence in itself is a challenge since both accurate and easy-to-use screening tools as well as golden standards are lacking.
