Standard: $49.99

Description

Although CF newborn screening (NBS) has been available across the United States since 2010, CF Centers and NBS labs  still face challenges in optimizing the process from a positive NBS test to CF diagnosis, dealing with indeterminate results (i.e., CFTR-related metabolic syndrome, CRMS), and optimizing outcomes such as nutrition and family experience. The goal of this short course is to provide CF caregivers with resources and updates on how to optimize the CF NBS process and care of infants diagnosed with CF or CRMS through NBS.
