Research

Allergy & Asthma Network is a multidisciplinary community of patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals and community stakeholders all dedicated to ending needless death and suffering due to asthma, allergies and related conditions. One of our core mission areas is research.  Research often takes on many different forms, from qualitative market research to focus groups to rigorous, scientific drug development. No matter what the form, Allergy & Asthma Network is committed to giving you an opportunity to lend your voice.

Decision Mapping—Much has changed since 1985 — or has it? This qualitative research project analyzes patients’ and healthcare professionals’ beliefs and behaviors to detect trends and better understand issues facing families with asthma and allergies.

OPEN Asthma Survey The Observations of Patient Experience in the Nation (OPEN) Asthma Survey was commissioned by the Allergy and Asthma Network and sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to explore current attitudes of healthcare providers and patients about asthma control with the goal of identifying areas for improvement. The survey included people living with asthma who were treated with daily prescription medicine, as well as healthcare providers who treat patients with asthma. The survey revealed several key disconnects:
  • Patient perceptions of asthma control
  • Attitudes and experience living with asthma
  • Varying accounts of office visit discussions
