Özet

Background: Patient satisfaction is regarded as an important indicator in assessing the quality of care. Over the past 20 years, in particular, there has been increasing interest in patients' perceptions about the provision of healthcare. Although asthma is a disease that increases the burden on health expenditure and has high cost requirements, there have been few studies evaluating the views of asthma patients about their treatment. The aims of this study were to identify factors affecting the satisfaction of asthma patients and to contribute to the sparse literature on this topic.
