PMAQ is a measure of self-reported adherence with 61 items that were designed to evaluate a patient’s treatment adherence behavior and its determinants by providing a quantitative measure of adherence and information on why a patient is or is not adherent. It is divided into two sections. Section 1 contains six items pertaining to medication-taking behaviors and asks patients to rank on an ordinal scale how often they missed individual doses or days of medication. Section 2 contains 55 items pertaining to barriers and motivators to taking medications. Each item is rated on a Likert scale from 0 to 3 or 0 to 5.
