Abstract Treatment nonadherence is a formidable challenge in today's clinical practice. Despite decades of focused research, medication adherence continues to be a significant risk factor for poor prognosis in schizophrenia. Studies demonstrate that no single strategy is effective for all patients and that a multidisciplinary approach customized to the patient's individual needs results in improved adherence rates. This Open Forum presents a comprehensive model for organizing and incorporating current and future evidence-based strategies with a focus on educational strategies, psychotherapeutic techniques, and a strong therapeutic alliance.
