Abstract

Chronic respiratory conditions (CRCs) are life-long diseases affecting millions of people worldwide. They have a huge impact on individuals’ everyday lives, resulting in a number of physical and emotional challenges. Self-management interventions for CRCs are thought to provide empowerment and improve quality of life. However, despite the number of people living with CRCs, most self-management tools in previous HCI work have been designed without the insight of those affected by the conditions.In this paper, we contribute to the literature by investigating the experiences and everyday challenges faced by those with CRCs, through the involvement of 156 participants via interviews and an anonymous survey. Our findings reveal the self-care challenges of CRCs and the reactive management approaches taken by participants. We conclude by providing a set of design implications that support the design of future self-management tools forCRCs.
