HART research on asthma

P1060038HART researchers, Dr Jacquelyn Allen-Collinson and Dr Helen Owton (Open University), together with Prof Niro Siriwardena of the Community and Health Research Unit at Lincoln University, have recently published an article in Chest journal (the journal of the American College of Chest Physicians). The article, entitled: ‘Using a narrative approach in clinical practice to facilitate change in asthma patients’, investigates a framework for clinicians to listen to patients’ narratives, developed from a qualitative research project on the lived experience of asthma. The article explores how this approach can enhance communication, improve patient-clinician relationship, and foster better patient self-care. A link to the article can be found here
