Conclusions: The AsthmaPACT provides an assessment of 1) risk-factors for non-adherence and 2) patient self-report of adherence, and is readily available as a tool to individuals with asthma who have access to the Internet. Findings in this study are consistent with GINA 2008 Guidelines regarding common risk-factors for non-adherence and specifically to the child’s emotional state and QoL for both the child and parent. The AsthmaPACT might be considered for symptomatic patients to identify barriers to treatment and diagnose adherence status.
