Abstract

The overarching objective of this review is to enhance understanding of the lived experiences of parents and carers in managing a child with asthma. Enablers and barriers encountered by parents will be examined and findings of the review will be used to develop recommendations for enhancing policy and practice aimed at improving asthma management for children and their families. The specific objective of this review is to critically appraise and synthesize the best available evidence based on qualitative studies exploring the experiences of parents and carers in managing their child’s asthma. The primary question to be addressed is: • What are the lived experiences of parents and carers when caring for a child with asthma? Secondary questions to be addressed include: • What barriers exist for parents and carers in managing their child’s asthma? • What enablers exist for parents and carers in managing their child’s asthma?.
