Adolescents with asthma suffer significant disease related morbidity in part because of ineffective self-management behaviors. According to a self regulation view of social cognitive theory, disease self-management behaviors are reciprocally influenced by personal and environmental factors. Research suggests that individuals that set goals and that receive support and feedback are most likely to successfully change behaviors. Little is known about goal setting in asthma self-management among adolescents and their parents. The purpose of this study was to conduct focus group interviews with parents and their adolescent child to determine their goals for asthma self-management. The following research questions were addressed: (a) Do adolescents and their parents set self-management goals? (b) Are self-management goals of adolescents and their parents similar or different? Interviews were guided by questions developed by the investigator and a doctoral student. A non-randomized sample of urban adolescents with asthma and their parent/guardian was recruited using flyers posted in local high schools, community centers, and physician offices. Two separate 90 minute focus group sessions led by a facilitator were conducted with parent (n=14) and adolescent (n=14) groups at a local mall in a private room. Verbatim audiotapes of each session were transcribed and individually reviewed by the investigator, doctoral student, and the facilitator in a reflexive manner. All transcripts were independently coded with themes, and then collaboratively reviewed for agreement on themes. Seven (50%) of the adolescent participants were male and three (23%) of the parents were male. The mean age for the adolescent group and parent group was 16 and 47 years, respectively. Findings revealed that parents and adolescents formulate different goals. The goals of parents focused on "protecting their adolescent from harm", "autonomy support" and "community based advocacy". In contrast adolescents focused on "enhancing physical activity to promote lung health," "managing the social context of the disease," and "prevention of dependency." More research is needed to determine how these goal conflicts influence self-management behaviors, and in turn, influence asthma outcomes.
