Concordance with growth hormone therapy in 75 children was objectively assessed through data on GP prescriptions over 12-months. 23% missed >2 injections/week. Lower concordance was associated with: longer duration on GH therapy (p<0.005), lack of choice of delivery device (p<0.005), and short prescription durations (p<0.005), and predicted lower height velocities (p<0.05).
