Abstract

Adherence to medical treatment advice is necessary to gain the intended improvement in patient outcomes. This paper looks at how empathic dialogues delivered by a relational agent can build an ongoing therapeutic alliance with the patient with the intention of improving access and adherence to the treatment advice. We present a case study and design currently under development for the domain of pediatric incontinence.
