Compliance refers to whether or not the patient does what the doctor orders. Did your child take his medication as prescribed, for the entire course of treatment? Good - you get a gold star for compliance.

Unfortunately, everybody - even doctors and nurses taking medication themselves - finds that being totally obedient to the therapeutic plan can be difficult, if not downright impossible. Hence all the efforts made to improve patient compliance by developing medicines that can be given less often, that taste better, etc.
