Asthma is one of the most common chronic illnesses in children and adolescents. In Bangkok, Thailand, the prevalence of asthma has increased substantially from 4.2% in 1986 to 13.0% in 1996. Chronic illnesses, like asthma, have potentially detrimental effects when children reach adolescence. Developmental challenges that occur during adolescence, including the struggle to preserve self-esteem, may contribute to an increased risk for ignoring the need for asthma control. Learned resourcefulness is a collection of cognitive-behavioral coping skills that individuals use to regulate their response to stressful life events. Although research has shown that asthmatic children who have used self-management skills have been successful in minimizing the negative impact of asthma on their quality of life, there are few studies to date that examine factors that promote self-management behavior in adolescents. The purpose of this correlational, model-testing study is to explore the relationships among self-esteem, learned resourcefulness, and self-management behavior of Thai adolescents with asthma. Within the context of Rosenbaum’s theory of learned resourcefulness, a convenience sample of 185 Thai adolescents (aged 12-17 years) who have asthma will be recruited from outpatient asthma clinics of four hospitals in Bangkok. Self-administered questionnaires, including an assessment of demographic information and asthma status, the revised Family APGAR, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, the Children’s Self-Control Scale, and the Asthma Self-Care Practice Instrument will be used to collect data. Subjects will also be asked to perform peak flow meter tests to evaluate peak expiratory flow rate. Data will be analyzed by using multiple regressions to explain the relationships among variables. The findings are expected to extend nursing knowledge, which then help nurses create appropriate interventions to promote asthma self-management behaviors of Thai adolescents with asthma.
