Description

The care of individuals with CF and advanced lung disease can be challenging, especially as one considers the transition to lung transplantation. This session will give an overview of the care of patients with advanced lung disease, the timing of referral and listing for lung transplantation, the transition to transplant and palliative care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify important indications for lung transplant referral and describe comorbid conditions that require specific treatment among patients with reduced lung function.
  • Discuss the known barriers and facilitators to a smooth transition to lung transplant with a focus on lessons learned through the CF Lung Transplant LLC.
  • Summarize the available evidence for palliative care in CF and describe practices that can be incorporated into the care of patients with advanced lung disease.
