            Abstract

            Asthma is one of the most common childhood chronic diseases in the world, and the nature of paediatric asthma management inherently requires intense collaborative care. In this paper, we report the results of a multi-method qualitative inquiry aimed at understanding paediatric asthma management and the potential for technologies to support low-income families. Our findings highlight three themes around the challenges to managing paediatric asthma faced by low-income families in the US: information sharing about environmental triggers, health communication and coordination, and the need for social support. Additionally, we critique existing solutions in light of the needs of families and suggest new avenues for designing for effective asthma management.
