Patient Reported Outcomes are increasingly important in asthma research.
A common tool used in asthma research and clinical practice is the Asthma Control Test, allowing one to distinguish between controlled versus uncontrolled asthma. This questionnaire was previously validated in
primarily an adult, Caucasian population. Practitioners increasingly found that this questionnaire was not really capturing asthma control outcomes in adolescents. Adolescents are at highest risk of asthma morbidity
and mortality. We designed a prospective, cohort study of adolescents seen in our Raleigh, NC asthma clinic to identify the measurement properties of this commonly used tool.
