ABSTRACT

Asthma is a common condition among young children, especially between 4 and 11 years of age. Early diagnosis of asthma and compliance with medications can reduce the incidence of complications and adverse medication events. However, this is mainly dependent on the awareness of parents about the disease and its treatment. This review aimed to assess parents' awareness and attitudes toward asthma during the last decade. The literature was searched through Medline, Ovid, Embase, and PubMed database from 2010 to October 2020. After the inclusion of only original studies and exclusion of review articles, 11 articles were taken under consideration. Eight articles were defined as eligible, covering a total of 3,701 parents of children who had asthma, and were from different countries. Awareness and practices of parents toward their children's asthma care measures should be improved in order to reduce the prevalence of uncontrolled asthma among children.
