ABSTRACT:
One of the major factors that influence proper management of asthma is patient’s education. Prior knowledge of etiology, usage of medication regarding asthma is a necessity for better patient compliance. Evaluation of knowledge of diseases and attitude is very important for the patient’s wellbeing, which hinders asthma complication and also synergises health improvement. Data regarding disease knowledge and drug adherence for occupational asthma is negligible in India. Hence the evaluation of knowledge of garment induced bronchial asthma amongst textile workers which was conducted in a few textile industries adds in to the data. In reference to this regard, patient required information had been taken from 857 patients with a response rate of 96%. Majority of the participants were between 30-60 years of age. Ratio of male and female was found to be 39.08% (334) and 61.02 % (523) respectively. The participants received a score value of 20 and 15 for disease knowledge and attitude towards asthma respectively. Therefore present clinical study concluded that patients lack the knowledge and medication adherence which also induces misunderstanding in management of disease condition precisely in patients suffering from occupational asthma.
