We interviewed 35 people about their experiences of living with severe asthma. Our researchers travelled to urban and regional areas throughout Australia to talk to people in their own homes. People we spoke to talked about how severe asthma affects them- the emotional burden, challenges of everyday life, personal relationships, what they value out of their interactions with healthcare providers and how medication affects them.
