28th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

S18: CLIN: CF Advisory Board Track: Strategies for Implementing the New Infection Control Guidelines

Oct 11, 2014 10:30am ‐ Oct 11, 2014 12:20pm

Standard: $49.99

Description

In 2013, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) revised the evidence-based infection prevention and control guidelines. Many embrace the increased measures, others feel they are restrictive, not justified based on evidence, create challenges and have a negative psychosocial impact. It is our responsibility to provide the best care in the safest environment and to find solutions to these challenges so patients do not experience a lack of psychological support and social isolation. This symposium will review the key changes in the recommendations, discuss the evidence showing reduction in CF pathogens when guidelines are implemented, review the psychosocial impact and solutions will be shared.
