This session provides an overview of treatment of the patient with cystic fibrosis from neonate through the transition to adulthood. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition that has lasting effects on all aspects of a patient and their family’s life. Focus will be on the implications of physical therapy across the age and setting continuum. Attendees will learn current evidence on diagnosis, best practice for medical and rehabilitative treatment, and the physical therapist’s role in the care of patients with cystic fibrosis. Case studies and a lab component will be used to highlight various aspects of evidence, treatment recommendations and specific techniques.
