Activity Description

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited chronic disease caused by a gene defect. It is estimated to occur in about 1 in every 3500 children born in the United States. This complex disease can affect the lungs, the digestive system, and other organs resulting in a high morbidity and mortality. CF can also affect the pharmacokinetics of many drugs and this needs to be considered when prescribing medications to CF patients. CF has no known cure, but treatments are available to help modify the disease process. The modules of this program will provide information on the disease and treatments for the CF patient as well as address other important challenges and considerations in CF patients. Module 4 discusses the importance of adherence in CF patients and will address the role of education to improve the treatment of CF patients.

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define adherence
  • Describe the medication access programs available for CF patients
  • Discuss the role of education in improving medication adherence in CF patients
