Use of focus group methodology to develop an asthma self-management program useful for community-based medical practices.
Health education programs developed in academic medical centers are not optimally disseminated to community clinical settings.
Strategies are needed to translate the findings of research on health education programs into programs useful in a wide range of health care settings.
Focus group techniques were used to provide data for revising a successful university-based asthma self-management program to make it more practical for use by community physicians.
Physicians representing a variety of specialties attended the sessions and provided feedback on the utility of various components of the original program.
The discussions revealed that many physicians felt they did not have the time or resources to conduct the original program and identified elements viewed as impractical.
