Using Tele-coaching to Manage Cystic Fibrosis

Trial Objective

Our researchers are studying how tele-coaching can be used to help people with cystic fibrosis (CF) manage their treatment plan, which often includes many medications and airway-clearance routines.

Using Tele-coaching to Manage Cystic Fibrosis

Tele-coaching includes a telephone interview and web conferencing. Input from people with CF, their parents and their providers will be used to develop a tele-coaching program and future research studies. Another purpose of the study is to understand the accuracy of airway-clearance vest meters. The overall goal is to better understand treatment concerns of people with CF and to help them successfully manage their condition.  


This trial is active and currently recruiting.
