Supporting project by DAAB e.V. - Allergic diseases from a patient point of view: Survey regarding perceptions and requests of allergic patients
Project leader Dipl. oec. troph. Sabine Schnadt
The research regarding risk factors for development of allergic diseases makes sense, both for better prevention and therapy. To realize this aim in the long term, the patients point of view has to be considered, because actions can only be effective with good adherence.
Development of a questionnaire for parents to determine their perceptions and requests towards the „allergy score“ to be developed by CHAMP. Statistical probability and medical prediction caused by immune markers are relevant for the physician, but which kind of information depending on the disease does the patient want?
In addition to the survey DAAB informs patients and lay people about the CHAMP projects and presents objectives and results on a website and in the magazine „Allergie konkret“.
First step: Development of a questionnaire to determine perceptions and requests of patients referring to the focus of the research like „allergy score“ and how to deal with prediction of allergic diseases.
Second step: The survey is realized by an online-questionnaire.
Third step: Evaluation of the results, which are included into the work of the other project partners if possible.
Parallel to the project the lay public, especially allergic patients are informed about the topics and results of this researching project via a dedicated website: www.daab.de/forschungsprojekte/champ/.
