Excerpt

The objective of this Future Research Needs (FRN) project was to engage a diverse set of stakeholders to confirm, provide more detail, and prioritize the research needs that were identified in a comparative effectiveness review (CER) on the effectiveness of breathing exercises and/or retraining in the treatment of asthma. We also sought to provide information on ongoing studies of relevance to the prioritized list of research questions and study design considerations for the highly prioritized questions.
