Asthma and pregnancy

Dr. Graham Williamson has been involved in three projects investigating asthma and pregnancy, from the point of view of care and support of expectant mothers.

Graham has worked closely with clinical colleagues in respiratory medicine at the Royal Devon and Exeter Foundation NHS Trust. All three projects were funded by small grants, the initial study from the Royal Devon and Exeter, the other two via the School of Nursing and Midwifery alumni funds.

Future plans include the development of a trial to investigate whether or not using the phone app My Asthma (©2016 GlaxoSmithKline) influences symptom control and anxiety amongst pregnant women with asthma, compared to usual care.
