Real-World Challenges of Treating and Preventing Infections
Session Format

Looking to better understand how clinicians think about treating and preventing infection? Want to know how you can best protect yourself in your day-to-day life? Want to understand more about what happens when the science of infection control meets real life, for both clinicians and patients? Then this session is for you! Hear from clinicians and adults with CF about ways in which we can make informed treatment decisions, balance infection control with living a full life, and advocate for ourselves and our loved ones. Come away from this session with a better understanding of how your care team considers risks and benefits – from concerns about antibiotic resistance to minimizing treatment burden –and makes decisions. Gain more insight about how you can effectively partner with your care team to develop a patient-centered treatment plan that makes sense for you.
