Project staff will consider a request to participate from a spouse or other caregiver if: (1) s/he provides care for an adult with CF, and (2) the caregiver has significant interaction with the CF care team. The project team may also consider a representative if the process is too strenuous for the patient’s condition. So, please sign up!!
