Self-reports are a primary source of behavioral data. Studies have highlighted the variable validity and reliability of self-report measures of health behaviors such as adherence to therapy. Research on self-reports of sensitive information, such as sexual behavior and drug use, suggests that the mode of data collection may enhance validity of self-reports. However, no studies have determined how the mode of data collection influences self-reports when an objective measure of the behavior is available.
The primary aim of this study is to examine the influence of the mode of data collection on the validity of self-reports of inhaled anti-inflammatory medication adherence.
The key secondary outcomes of the study will attempt to answer the following questions: 1) does the assessment mode influence self-reports of commonly used asthma outcome measures of disease-related symptoms, self-management behaviors, and quality of life?; 2) does the relationship between the assessment mode, the validity of self-reports of adherence, and other measures (i.e., asthma symptoms, self-management behaviors, and quality of life) change over time?; and 3) does the assessment mode interact with baseline personality characteristics and mood to influence the validity of self-reports of adherence and other outcome measures (i.e., asthma symptoms, self-management behaviors, and quality of life)?
