Relationship Between Consultation Attributes and Compliance With Medications (the Dependent Variable) in Logistic Regression Analysis (N = 172)

Consultation VariableUnadjusted OR (95% CI)Adjusted* OR (95% CI)
Note: All analyses are adjusted for clustering.
OR = odds ratio; CI = confidence interval; UPC = Usual Provider Continuity.
* Logistic regression adjusted for age, sex, ethnicity, education, perceived financial status, EuroQol 5-dimensional questionnaire (EuroQol-5D) score, and number of visits in the last year.
† After addition of an interaction term for sex and doctor-patient concordance to the model, OR = 1.74 (95% CI, 1.25–2.43).
