to Cystic Fibrosis Medicine. This dedicated website on cystic fibrosis
has been developed to provide clinical information on all aspects
of cystic fibrosis. The site is aimed at health care professionals,
individuals with cystic fibrosis and their families.
Fibrosis Medicine is run by a clinical team responsible for the
care of over 500 patients with cystic fibrosis. Many of the articles
are based on the Leeds Method of Management book which is published
every few years. New sections are always being added and we
have recently upgraded the drug database. For UK evidence based
guidelines we would recommend visiting the UK CF Trust website.
pages have links to national and international meetings, Pubmed searches for up
to date publications, and links to dedicated sites run by charities, major
organisations and specialist groups.
objectives are to improve the standards of care of people with
cystic fibrosis and to ensure free access to clinical information.
The authors welcome constructive feedback and are always happy to
hear from health care professionals who wish to contribute to the
development of this site.
team at Cystic Fibrosis Medicine would like to thank our sponsor,
Forest Laboratories UK LTD, for supporting the running of this site.
