ARAUJO, Alisson; ROCHA, Regina Lunardi  e  ALVIM, Cristina Gonçalves. Adolescence and asthma management: the perspective of adolescents receiving primary health care. Rev. paul. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.3, pp.171-176. ISSN 0103-0582.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0103-0582201432304.

Objective:

To study the influence of adolescence characteristics on asthma management.

Methods:

This was a qualitative study conducted in the city of Divinópolis, Minas Gerais, Southeast Brazil. Data were collected through semistructured interviews guided by a questionnaire with seven asthmatic adolescents followed-up in the primary public health care service of the city.

Results:

Using content analysis, three thematic categories were observed in the adolescents' responses: 1) family relationships in the treatment of asthma in adolescence; 2) the asthmatic adolescents and their peers; and 3) the role of the school for the asthmatic adolescents.

Conclusions:

The results demonstrated that peers, family, and school should be more valued by health professionals and by health care services when treating asthmatic adolescents, as these social relationships are closely associated with the adolescent and have an important role in asthma management. Attempts to meet the demands of adolescents contribute to improve asthma management.
