CFFC’s Board of Directors has formulated a position statement covering our responsibilities in promoting infection prevention at events sponsored by CFFC. Basically, we are seeking a reasonable balance between enabling connections across the CF community and protecting that community from unnecessary risks of exposure to infections. Please read the full CFFC and Infection Prevention statement.
In developing our position, CFFC studied the policy issued by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and considered the remarks offered by Dr. John J. LiPuma at the 34th Kit Taylor Memorial Lecture. You can find links to these sources on our Medical Care Information Resources page.
CF Education Day (May 31, 2014) will be the first opportunity to put our guidelines in action.
