Abstract

Introduction : Pulmonary tuberculosis is one of the diseases causing death in Indonesia. Pulmonary tuberculosis takes at least 6 months continuous treatment without interruption, so it is important to the patient to have commitment and level of medication adherence. The aim of this study was to analyze the correlation between in the use of TB-DOTS and Tuberculosis patient’s level of treatment adherence. Method This study used a correlational design. The population was all Tuberculosis patients who was seeking treatment at Lung Polyclinic of RSUI Madinah Kasembon. Samples were selected using purposive sampling techniques, with DOTS implementation as an independent variable, and the level of adherence as the dependent variable. Data were collected using a questionnaire, the results of data normality were tested by Kolmogorov-Smirnov and finished by using Pearson’s Correlation with α ≤ 0.05. The results showed that implementation of DOTS was not related to the patient’s level of medication adherence. This was indicated by correlation coefficient of r = 0.259. It showed that there was a correlation between in the use of TB-DOTS and the level of adherence, but it was not significant enough, as showed by significant value of p = 0.299. Discussion There are many factors that affect a person's level of adherence with Tuberculosis to take medicine outside the implementation of DOTS. Another aspect such as internal or external factors of adherence could affect level of adherence. Future studies are expected to study other factors that may improve adherence to TB patient. Keywords: TB-DOTS, adherence, Pulmonary Tuberculosis
