The patient plays a primary role in daily asthma management. The ideas that the patient has regarding asthma, the impact of the disease on daily life, the subjective interpretation of symptoms, and therapeutic adherence depend on psychological characteristics. Moreover, the disease itself may create psychological dysfunction. The aim of this review is to explore different patient-related factors that may influence the unsuccessful fulfillment of optimal levels of asthma control.
