Evaluation of Decisional Conflict and Needs Assessment in Asthma Management
Many patients suffering from asthma are not compliant to their treatment and consequently, are not well controlled. Shared decision making intervention has shown an improvement in the outcome of patients with chronic disease. The aim of this study is to evaluate decisional conflict and to assess decisional needs of adults with asthma.
