Oct 18, 2018 2:00pm ‐ Oct 18, 2018 3:25pm


Rapidly advancing treatments of cystic fibrosis have increased the expected life span and quality of life trajectories for persons with CF. This symposium will: 1) Explore the potential for further enhancements of mental and physical health throughout the life-cycle through evidence-based recommendations for sleep, exercise, and nutrition. 2) Enable persons with CF and healthcare professionals to co-produce individual plans for healthy habits. Additionally, an adult CF patient will present his perspective on the impact that sleep, exercise, and nutrition has had on his life and well-being.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize current knowledge regarding the impact of sleep on health in cystic fibrosis and identify strategies for improving sleep using cognitive behavioral techniques.
  • Describe the benefits of engaging in a pulmonary rehabilitation program and utilizing individualized exercise and fitness regimens to optimize pulmonary and mental health outcomes.
  • Examine evolving nutrition research that goes beyond the FEV1/BMI association and high fat/high calorie diets. Discuss how dietary composition and personalized medical nutrition therapy can impact CF outcomes.
