The research 'The influence of age on the level of adherence to therapy in children and adolescents with chronic respiratory diseases,' developed by the physiotherapist of the Instituto Fernandes Figueira (IFF / Fiocruz) Luciana Machado, was awarded the 15th International Symposium of Respiratory Therapy, which occurred in Porto Alegre. The study, by the physiotherapist Carlos Roberto Pereira, competed with over 150 papers and won 2nd place in Professional category Poster.

Result of a cross-sectional study carried out with 37 children accompanied by staff from the Clinic of Respiratory Therapy at IFF, the work collected through the questionnaire, data on the education of patients and their parents, place of residence, family income, age of starting treatment, family support, among other information. The objective was to evaluate the influence of age of children and adolescents in their degree of adherence to respiratory therapy, which was measured from the number of Members of the ambulatory patient divided by the total number of appointments for the period in which research was conducted.

Guided by the researcher Christine Gonçalves and conducted with the involvement of physiotherapists Carlos Roberto Pereira, Marcia Castro, Nelbe Nesi and Roberta Correia, the study found that age influenced by 20% in the level of adherence to therapy in patients with chronic respiratory diseases. According to Luciana, adolescents showed a lower degree of adherence to treatment for young children. One must consider the possible difficulties of coordinating the public health care and their daily activities to contribute to increased adherence to treatment and thus improved quality of life, notes the author.
