Table 1 Questions asked in the phase 1 questionnaires distributed to clinicians, parents, and young people

From: Development of a core outcome set for clinical trials in childhood asthma: a survey of clinicians, parents, and young people

Clinician questionnaire “When you see children with asthma in clinic, you make an assessment as to whether their treatment is working. Please list up to five beneficial or harmful outcomes of treatment that you find clinically most important in school-aged/preschool children. These factors should be things that you consider, when deciding whether to recommend continuing on current treatment or altering a child’s regular asthma therapy regime”
Parents (young peoples’) questionnaire “Over the last 12 months, have you generally felt that the regular preventer treatment that your child (you) takes has kept their asthma under control? Yes/No. If you ticked YES, please tell us what aspects of your child’s (your) asthma, or their daily life, have made you feel happy that they are on the correct regular medication. If you ticked NO, please leave this question blank”
  “Over the last 12 months, have there been times when you felt that your child’s (your) regular preventer treatment should be increased or changed, because their (your) asthma was not under control? Yes/No. If you ticked YES, please tell us the reasons why you were not satisfied with the regular preventer treatment that they (you) were taking? If you ticked NO, please leave this space blank”
  “Does anything worry you about the fact that your child (you) has asthma? Yes/No. If you ticked YES, please tell us the worries you have about the fact your child (you) has asthma. If you ticked NO, please leave this space blank”
  “Does anything worry you about the regular preventer treatment that your child (you) takes for their asthma? Yes/No. If you ticked YES, please tell us what worries you have about the treatment your child takes for their asthma. Please be as specific as you can.
