The development of age appropriate paediatric formulations, particularly those suitable for young children, presents challenges with only limited knowledge available on the acceptability of different medicines and how this affects medication adherence. This thesis describes studies conducted at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool UK, with the aim of determining which factors relating to dose form and organoleptic properties of a medicinal product influence medication adherence in chronically ill children. The research was conducted in two phases comprising 70 chronically ill children aged between 3 and 11 years, 70 primary caregivers, and 33 hospital clinical and technical staff.
