Cystic fibrosis resources! 

Comment 1 Standard

Working on a respiratory unit I often have patients that have been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). This is a population I never worked with at my previous position in the pediatric emergency room so I had a lot of learning to do coming into my new position. May is CF awareness month so I thought I’d share some of the amazing resources I have found to help educate and support our CF patients.

With a quick google search, I was able to find (free!) resources via the cystic fibrosis foundation web page. I requested a couple of items, one of which is my ultimate favorite: a coloring/story book about a little panda with CF name Huxi! I was also sent booklets for parents/caregivers, booklets for teens, and a big “ultimate guide to CF” binder, stress balls, and luggage tags. I am so thankful for all of these resources and how they will help my patients (and myself) learn more about CF.

To see where I found these resources, follow the link below:
