ARANEDA M, MARCO. Treatment Compliance in Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: A Psychological Perspective. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.6, pp. 560-569. ISSN 0370-4106.

Introduction: A psychological perspective is offered for the evolution of the concept of "treatment compliance" among adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. Focus is placed on the main elements that have marked this evolution, with associated therapeutic modalities, from 1970 until now. Method: Literature review and discussion of significant papers. Conclusions: The concept of "treatment compliance" has evolved towards a dynamic multifactorial process, the result of an agreement between the patient and the treatment team, including a balance with factors necessary for the adolescent's development. In this light, various elements are reviewed that may be of importance to the treatment team.

Palabras clave : Diabetes; compliance; adolescence.
