Centre for Adherence Research & Education

Our vision

The Centre for Adherence Research & Education (CARE) provides a research and learning hub for understanding and addressing non-adherence issues. CARE draws on the proven expertise of clinicians and researchers working in the locality.

By raising healthcare professionals’, caregivers’ and social care staff’s awareness of the non-adherence challenge and by providing straight forward and user-friendly approaches to help patients engage with their treatment - CARE aims to improve patients’ health outcomes. Our management group and steering committee includes senior clinicians and researchers from across King's Health Partners.

ips care our vision

The ‘Supporting Medication Adherence’ online training was developed by specialist staff at King’s College London and funded by King’s Health Partners to address the global health challenge of non-adherence. All staff at King’s Health Partners and staff and students at King’s College London can access this online training for free. In addition, a number of healthcare professionals are provided free access courtesy of an educational grant from Abbott.

Other interested organisations and individuals can access the online training by contacting CARE directly. Please get in touch via   for more information about CARE’s training packages and research.

Our research themes

CARE are involved in numerous adherence projects within King's College London. We translate our research insights into CARE training packages and aim to play a role in connecting people interested in improving adherence across King's Health Partners sites.

The themes of these projects include:

• Investigating non-adherence

• Evaluation of training


I believe that the Level 1 Adherence training delivered by CARE provides the highest quality training in an area that is highly relevant for the intended learners. […] The skills provided are highly relevant to clinicians and supported through a structured learning process and have the potential to have a strong impact on the health of the local population. For this reason, the training is likely to attract high numbers of strong applicants who wish to upskill in this area.
