This research studied the effects of three intervention conditions on behaviors adherence to treatment in women with SLE. This is a longitudinal study with data collection at 30, 60, 90 and 120 days.

Participants were distributed sequentially in three intervention conditions: Condition A (n = 5), routine and interview; Condition B (n = 5), and routine interview with use of checklist; Condition C (n = 5), routine interview with use of self-monitoring checklist and records. There was quantitative and qualitative analysis, comparing the data in different times of the study. As a result, it was found that, regardless of the condition to which the participant was exposed, there was improvement in reported adherence, the clinical status and quality of life of the participants at the end of the study; however, participants of Condition C kept the adherence behaviors installed even after the withdrawal of the intervention procedure, suggesting better compliance rate to treatment (average of 95.71).
