This congress is the first international meeting completely dedicated to Adult Cystic Fibrosis. In the past, thinking of dedicating a whole International Congress to Adult Cystic Fibrosis would have been considered a utopia, but in the last decades, the new epidemiology and the medical advances in diagnosis, therapies and treatments have made this topic worth of dedicated attention.
The aim of the workshop is to gather international experts - researchers and clinicians – specialized in Cystic Fibrosis to discuss in depth the critical issues connected with the management of the pathology in adult age.
Topics will include: living with cystic fibrosis, epidemiology and guidelines, management of infections, how to deal with NTM, as well as specific adult issues, as wellbeing, social and employment problems, pregnancy, up to end of life management.
Joining forces, exchanging clinical experiences, sharing data and instruments, creating a network of active experts in the field are the main goals of the conference. In fact, we hope that this meeting could become a traditional appointment, to support always new approaches, treatments and frontiers for patients affected by this disease.
