Objective. To engage pharmacy students in a ‘mock medicines’ teaching activity to increase\ud their understanding of the patients’ perspectives of medicine-taking. To explore students’\ud awareness of intentional reasons for non-adherence.\ud Methods. Students were given one of five different dosing regimes and asked to take the\ud mock medicine (TicTacs©) over a one-week period. They completed a data capture form to\ud log each dose taken or missed and provide reasons for this. An adherence score was\ud calculated and all feedback transcribed for further analysis.\ud Results. Seventy-six out of 115 students submitted forms, where adherence ranged from 4\ud to 100% (mean 88.7, SD=19.77). Nine factors relating to unintentional non-adherence were\ud identified compared to only one for intentional non-adherence.\ud Conclusions. Students engaged well with this activity showing a high percentage adherence\ud but this was not related to the complexity of dosing schedule. Students demonstrated more\ud awareness of the unintentional reasons for non-adherence than intentional.
