Children, young people and families’ experiences of chronic asthma management and care

Children, young people and families’ experiences of chronic asthma management and care

How do young people feel about the way in which their asthma is managed?
What kind of information works best for them and what kinds of services and support do they need to ensure good care and asthma control?

We are delighted to share a scoping review of existing evidence and findings from engagement work focused on better understanding the experiences of children and young people with chronic asthma from communities that have been marginalised.

Led by the Young People’s Health Partnership working in partnership with AYPH, Friends, Families and Travellers, the Race Equality Foundation and RCPCH&Us the work was delivered as part of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance.

The scoping review brings together evidence about children, young people and families’ experiences of managing and receiving care for chronic asthma. It includes a focus on the impact of inequality and a range of social factors on effective asthma management and how children, young people and families think care and management could be improved.
