Abstract

In this paper some attempts are made to predict patients' response to doctors' dissonant advice. Various methodological techniques are employed to predict (1) compliance in general, (2) compliance with specific regimens, and (3) changes in compliant behavior. Prediction of compliance depends in part upon the identification of sociological and psychological factors, particularly those salient norms and values, and the degree of congruence between them and the doctors' advice.
