Abstract

The purpose of this study was to illustrate how the daily phone diary (DPD) can be used to measure adherence behaviors in 2 pediatric pulmonary populations, cystic fibrosis (CF; n = 31) and asthma (n = 30). Computerized phone interview data was used to conduct activity pattern analyses, which revealed that parents of children with CF spent significantly more time in medical care and less time in recreation. Reasonable agreement was found for adherence rates between the DPD and electronic monitors. The DPD was also able to identify barriers to adherence, which included oppositional behaviors, forgetting, and competing activities. Overall, these data suggested that the DPD holds promise for measuring adherence behaviors within the family context.
