COVID-19 update: we are all embarking on unprecedented times at the moment and it would be understandable if you are feeling overwhelmed by the ever-changing situation of COVID-19 nationally and internationally. Now, more than ever, it is important that as physiotherapists we promote and support optimal treatment regimens for individuals with CF. Please use to provide you with the resources to more confidently treat your patients with CF. We will try to provide you up to date resources as they become available for management of a respiratory patient testing positive to COVID-19.  Please be vigilant with hand hygiene and the use of appropriate PPE for treating all patients with CF.

A need for resources

We have listened, and we have designed this for you. Both physiotherapists and individuals with CF have reported their journey in the health care system can sometimes be difficult, with some health care professionals not understanding their medical condition, or not having the skills to optimise their physiotherapy regimen. This website is designed as a resource for physiotherapists working with individuals with CF however may not have extensive experience in this clinical area, or are not regularly seeing individuals with CF (weekend, on call work, or working with smaller CF cohorts in regional areas).  The information provided will provide you with a practical translation of current evidence based literature. This website may assist in your ongoing professional development, and improve your knowledge and confidence in CF physiotherapy management.

Individuals with CF can be empowered through education. If you have CF please use this website to enhance the care you are already receiving by appropriately trained health care professionals. The information on the website might help provide you with the confidence to ask more questions in clinic, or consolidate techniques and information previously or recently given to you by your treating physiotherapist. You can watch videos of other individuals with CF being taught how to do various airway clearance techniques and other useful information. Be confident to be proactive and involved in your health journey.
