Abstract

This study utilized an adapted PRECEDE framework to identify factors that influence asthma patients' self-management behaviors. Adult asthma patients (N=116) were surveyed on the following factors to determine the affect on preventive asthma behaviors, behaviors during an asthma attack, and seeking information and support: knowledge, attitude, self-efficacy, outcome expectations, accessibility of resources, continuity of education, skills in equipment use, and reinforcement from others. Patients who: had lower knowledge levels; had less access to resources; received more medical advice; believed that the advice would result in positive outcomes; and had higher skill levels in equipment use performed preventive actions more often. Patients who had high self-efficacy levels reported that they performed self-management behaviors during an attack more often. Patients who had: lower knowledge levels; higher skill levels in equipment use; and higher levels of reinforcement from others were more likely to seek information and support regarding their asthma. The information from this study may be beneficial in helping pharmacists enable patients to manage their asthma.
