How CF affects the development & quality of non-parental relationships & how these relationships subsequently affect the well-being of people with CF is not often considered by healthcare providers.

Educational Objectives: 

  1. Compare & contrast the manner in which a CF diagnosis can affect relationships, including familial, peer, collegial & romantic relationships.
  2. Describe the influence of personal relationships on the physical & psychosocial well-being of people with CF.
  3. Evaluate strategies the CF care team can use to support the attainment of health & rewarding relationships.
