Abstract

Medication adherence in TB (tuberculosis) becomes a crucial factor in achieving success of treatment. The aim of this study was to assess the medication adherence of TB patients and to identify the predictors based on TPB (Theory of Planned Behavior). Cross-sectional studies were conducted in patients of TB with positive AFB (Acid-Fast Bacilli) test at a hospital in Pacitan District (N = 113), (n = 104) patient agreed to participate this study. Recruitment of the respondent was used total sampling method. Data collection was conducted from November 2017 to February 2018. The instrument in this study was developed in accordance with standard guideline of TPB, medication adherence was measured using MMAS-8. Multiple linear regression used to identify predictors. Mean score of medication adherence was 4.09 (SD = 0.936) (range of possible score = 1-8). ATB (Attitude Toward Behavioral) (p = 0,02), SN (Subjective Norm) (p = 0.00), and PBC (Perceived Behavior Control) (p = 0.00) significantly predicted intention (R Square = 0965), then intention may affect medication adherence (p = 0.00). The constructs of TPB, namely ATB, SN, PBC, and Intention significantly predicted medication adherence of TB patients. This study supports an investigation about the factors underlying medication adherence on a larger scale, as well as the identification of targets in designing future interventions.
