Help develop an App for Asthma

You are invited to take part in a research study to develop an asthma App for adolescents.  The App aims to help people with asthma to improve their asthma control through problem-solving and self-management using personalised steps and strategies.  You will be asked to participate in two focus group sessions with around 15 other adolescents with asthma.  The focus group sessions will be conducted at the University of Sydney, Camperdown in early 2015.

This study is being funded by Asthma Australia.  Asthma Australia, a not for profit organisation, wish to apply the results of this project to improve the health of young people with asthma.  

The researchers are seeking participants between 15 and 25 years of age who have a doctor diagnosis of asthma.
