Statement of Need
Based on a review of the current literature, including national and regional measures, detailed conversations with expert educators at Johns Hopkins, and a survey of potential program participants, this program will address the following core patient care gaps:
|| Clinicians need guidance in understanding how new findings describing CFTR-modifying therapies may improve their treatment of patients with cystic fibrosis.
|| Incomplete clinician awareness of genotype/phenotype correlations in non-pulmonary targets of CFTR-modifying therapies may limit their ability to provide optimal patient care.
||Clinicians lack effective guidance to increase caloric intake in patients who are nutritionally compromised.
||Clinicians do not fully understand how to manage the complexities of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy to achieve optimal results in their patients.
||Clinicians have unanswered questions about P. aeruginosa eradication in asymptomatic patients with positive cultures.
||New data and new choices for selecting initial inhaled anti-pseudomonal agents have created confusion.
||Conflicting data about pulmonary exacerbations has led to incorrect clinical assumptions and inappropriate treatment regimens.
