We used a method called photovoice, an arts-based qualitative method by which people can identify, represent and express their life experience through photographs. The photographs were used to stimulate discussion during a subsequent interview. To enact social change, some photographs which had been consented by participants were put up in an exhibition attended by local and international stakeholder. The idea is to create awareness of what it is like to be a person with asthma. The first document is the codebook of the overall analysis of the qualitative interview. In total, we had 26 in-depth interviews and 8 photovoice interviews. The process that took place to create this codebook includes: 1) initial open coding 2) collation of open codings to form categories and 3) formation of themes. The codebook is used to organise the themes in a systematic manner, to aid mapping of themes for further latent analysis and to aid write-up. Other documents include the flyer to invite participants to this study, infographic materials to aid photovoice training and two sets of the participants information sheet and consent (i) in-depth interview (ii) photovoice training and interviews Both documents are information to support part of the PhD work at the Usher Institute, the University of Edinburgh (PhD title: Developing and piloting an ICT-based intervention for adult asthma with limited health literacy to improve asthma self-management) Due to the sensitivity of the data and to protect the confidentiality of the participants involved in this study, the raw data will be deposited in DataVault at the University of Edinburgh.
