Abstract

Introduction: Due to higher transmission rates, expenses associated with pulmonary tuberculosis control initiatives, and its role as a key contributor to relapse and medication resistance, poor adherence to pulmonary tuberculosis treatment poses a serious risk to the public's health. This study looked at how audio-visual instruction and reminder systems could help pulmonary tuberculosis patients adhere to their treatment regimens. Methods: Using online databases Scopus, Science Direct, PubMed, and ProQuest, systematic reviews of publications published during 2018-2022 were looked up using the keywords Reminder System AND Audio-visual AND Treatment Adherence AND Pulmonary Tuberculosis. Patients with pulmonary tuberculosis made up the study's population. JBI Guidelines are used to evaluate and describe the efficacy of the approach. Explicit reporting components were handled by PRISMA rules. A descriptive analysis using a narrative method was employed to analyze the data. Results: 12 articles from 128 identified records were kept after applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Audio-visual instruction can improve a patient's level of understanding, perception, and adherence. Because it is intended to be integrated into routine tuberculosis care, reminder systems promote adherence to treatment and shorten the time to treatment beginning. Both interventions are practical, simple to use, and successful at increasing patients with pulmonary tuberculosis' adherence to their prescribed treatments. Conclusion: The variety of audio-visual instruction and reminder systems, the majority of which have been shown to increase pulmonary tuberculosis patients' adherence to treatment.
