S05--NRS: Caroline McPherson Symposium: Now That I Am Older


Oct 31, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Oct 31, 2019 3:45pm

Description

Advances in the treatment CF have increased life expectancy, with the median age now up to 46 (CFF Patient Registry, 2017). This number is likely to increase with the advent of CFTR modulators. With these victories also come the realities & challenges associated with increased age, many of which patients with CF have not experienced. This session will review and discuss issues that may accompany aging. Topics will include fertility, contraception and pregnancy. Peer Connect will join us to offer insight regarding the mentoring tools, resources and support available for patients . Finally, participants can anticipate hearing from an adult living with CF who will tell her experience on this journey into adulthood.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain and examine of the process of fertility.
  • Review pregnancy in relation to barriers, planning and treatment.
  • Identify more with adult patients and the struggles on their journey including utilizing CF Peer Connect.
