Adherence assessment for asthma care

Aim and method

This study draws on semi-structured interviews to explore young people’s experiences of using an electronic monitoring device to measure adherence to inhaled corticosteroids for asthma. More specific study questions concerned whether the device affected young people’s responsibility for asthma self-management, and the relationship between young people and healthcare professionals. Thematic analysis of the data was conducted.
