Summary

This study will consist of hour long focus groups or interviews with parents or legal guardians of children with asthma. The goal of this research is to determine barriers and challenges that parents face regarding daily asthma medication adherence. We also seek to identify success stories of parents who have been able to achieve high levels of medication adherence in their children and what factors might have facilitated this success. We will use the results of this study for the future development of an intervention that uses individual patient medication history to assess and communicate risk to providers and families in order to improve asthma medication adherence and reduce preventable Emergency Department visits and Hospitalizations.
