This study interrogated the challenge of limited understanding in real-time dynamics of non-adherence, contending that treatment scheduling-related factors ultimately had a bearing on the severity of other causative factors of non-adherence. Using data
generated by a real-time adherence monitoring device called Simpill, this study thus generally sought to investigate the relationship between treatment-scheduling related variables and Tuberculosis treatment adherence outcomes. It was shown that
treatment-scheduling related variables e.g. phase of taking treatment, the day and time affected adherence outcomes. This was attributed to the inter-connection of drug regimen complexity, patient-related, socio-cultural, care and support-related factors
etc. The study also argued on what declined rational medication behaviour among TB patients. Finally, a multi-perspective theoretical model for treatment adherence called the Point of Medication Model was formulated from the analyses.
