Drawing asthma: an interview

Are you interested in helping us further our understanding of healthcare professionals’ perceptions of asthma using an innovative method – drawings?

If so, and you are a healthcare professional, you are invited to take part in a research study exploring the use of drawings to further understanding of healthcare professionals’ perceptions of the experience of asthma. 

An emerging approach for investigating people’s perspectives of illness is the use of drawings. Despite the high prevalence of asthma, there is yet to be research using drawing to explore healthcare professionals’ perceptions of the experience of asthma in the Australian population. Drawings may be useful for expression and could increase our understanding of the perspective of healthcare professionals involved in asthma management.

The total time commitment is expected to be approximately one hour. You will be reimbursed for your time.

This study has received ethics approval from the University of Sydney HREC (project number: 2016/1004).
