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.
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.
