Other Affiliated Specialists
Sometimes your child may need the expertise of other specialists if she/he develops complications of CF related to other body systems. At Children's we coordinate with experts in the following fields:
Parents; you are the most important team members!
You are your child's caregiver. The cystic fibrosis (CF) team is here to support you and provide you with the resources necessary for your child to grow up with the brightest future.
The CF team members are physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, child life specialists, psychologists, pharmacists, genetic counselors, care managers, and integrative medicine specialists.
We are also your coaches, cheerleaders, and fans, rallied around three central goals:
1. To give the best possible care.
2. To keep your child in the best possible health for new therapies.
3. To see your child graduate to an adult CF center with normal lung function and normal nutritional status.
