Asthma Control in Teens and Young Adults - Clinical Trial
What is the Purpose of this Study?
We are doing this study to help young people with asthma better manage their medications in order to improve control of asthma symptoms. By improving control, we mean having fewer instances of wheezing, coughing, or chest tightness that require additional treatment by a doctor and increasing the time between asthma exacerbations.
Who Can Participate in the Study?
Adults and children ages 12-35 who:
- Are diagnosed with asthma
- Are prescribed a preventative inhaler that includes a corticosteroid
- Also use a short-acting inhaler (rescue inhaler)
- Have access to a reliable internet connection for virtual meetings with the study team
For more information about who can join this study, please contact the study team at DukeAirwayResearch@duke.edu or 919-479-0861.
What is Involved?
If you or your child choose to join this study, you or they will:
- Have 6 virtual visits with a research coordinator over 12 months
- Have lung function tested during the virtual visits
- Answer questionnaires
We will randomly select half of the study participants to have 8 additional virtual visits with a pharmacist to go over medication use.
