During this workshop, a number of key aspects of clinical epidemiology in CF will be explored. These topics will address the use of observational data to study survival differences between countries (example US & Canada), aspects of transition of care, pulmonary exacerbation & lung function decline.
Understand factors associated with lung function decline & acute pulmonary exacerbation, including lung function variability.
Explain potential reasons for differing survival in CF between countries.
Understand how transition of care from pediatric to adult centers occurs in the US.
