Abstract

Treatment burden is the ‘work of being a patient’. It comprises the time, effort and financial implications of following a treatment regimen in chronic disease, and the consequent impact on patients. Treatment burden may affect adherence, quality-of-life and health outcomes. Patients vary in their capacity to manage treatment demands. The concept of treatment burden is now recognised in national guidance on multimorbidity. GPs have an opportunity to enhance patient-centred care through recognition and optimisation of treatment burden.
