Modelling the effect of beliefs about asthma medication and treatment intrusiveness on adherence and preference for once-daily vs. twice-daily medication.

ABSTRACT: People with asthma who do not adhere to their maintenance medication may experience poorer asthma control and need more healthcare support than those who adhere.
