Towards modelling an asthma e-health communication tool for young people: a scoping exercise of current practice



  • Identify what is already available to young people and healthcare professionals
  • Explore healthcare professionals’ views about what would be useful and how it might work in practice.
  • Explore information available for young people on the internet and Mobile Apps regarding communicating in asthma consultations
  • Integrate these data with the advice of a patient and public involvement group to  develop a grant application to refine and evaluate an e-health asthma tool.


A scoping exercise utilising three methods; online survey, qualitative interviews and an online search of websites and Mobile Apps
